The five National QIS Research Centers are a collective force for quantum information science in the United States, driving scientific innovation, building a quantum ecosystem, and fostering the future quantum workforce.
With multiple avenues explored in the quantum science endeavor, QSA’s technology coordinator helps Center leadership see the big picture and advises on new approaches. QSA’s technology coordinator William D. Oliver discusses his perspectives about the importance of advancing quantum engineering for the field.
QSA participated in a conversation on September 3rd 2021 at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).
This work was supported by the Quantum Systems Accelerator, Center for Ultracold Atoms, National Science Foundation, Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship, Office of Naval Research, Army Research Office MURI, and DARPA ONISQ program. Team demonstrates a programmable 256-qubit quantum simulator based on neutral atoms.
How the Quantum Systems Accelerator Set A Shared Direction in Electronic Controls for Quantum Computing
QSA developed a roadmap of electronics controls for different qubit technologies. By looking at the specifications of control systems that will be required across QSA’s computational platforms, the roadmapping exercise brought together leading experts from member institutions to establish common goals.
QSA's leadership invited numerous founders, CEOs, senior scientists, and engineers of major publicly traded companies, medium-to-small sized businesses, and startups from across the United States and the world in the field of quantum information science (QIS) and technology.
