The Center for Quantum Science and Engineering (CQSE) is a vibrant hub for interdisciplinary students, scholars, and faculty, where innovative quantum engineering research, development, and education are inspired and facilitated through coordinated collaboration and interaction with governmental and industrial sectors to bring quantum solutions to all corners of society.
“Just as digital electronic devices have transformed our society, quantum photonics will advance science and technology in prodigious ways.”
Harnessing the ‘magic’ of quantum mechanics, quantum technologies offer evolutionary information capabilities and speed unmatched by techniques based on classical means.
Thanks to the dedicated worldwide effort of scientists and support from government and industry, there has been notable theoretical and experimental progress in demonstrating a wide range of quantum-enabled, or quantum-enhanced technologies, particularly those exploiting the quantum-mechanical nature of photons, and their potential in a wealth of application areas. Yet, major breakthroughs must be made, mostly in the areas of engineering, before compact, robust, and resilient quantum devices and systems can be mass produced and deployed.
To this end, significant challenges must be overcome in developing quantum devices and systems that satisfy the following practical criteria:
- Room Temperature
- Mass Production
