2023 Impact Report
In its third year of operations, QSA releases the latest R&D and ecosystem updates.
Quantum mechanics predicts that matter can be correlated to a degree which is not naturally observed in nature. QSA will address how this complexity can be transformed into an engineering resource.
QSA will establish the precision tools to control naturally occurring atomic qubits and better engineered superconducting qubits for existing classical controls.
QSA will nucleate a new branch of engineering, establish metrics, benchmarks, and technology roadmaps to guide industry and bring quantum from the laboratory to the factory.
QSA will establish a stable platform for cooperative research and a launchpad for young and mid-career scientists and engineers.
By using two-dimensional arrays of individually focused laser beams called optical tweezers, researchers can arrange images of forty-two atoms to spell out QSA. (Credit: Tout Wang, Lukin Group/Harvard University)
