Sandia National Labs Academic Alliance Collaboration Report 2020-2021
PROMINENT QUANTUM RESEARCH FUNDED AT UNM AND SANDIA
If we had to identify a theme for 2020, most of us would say “COVID-19,” but for UNM and for many national labs including Sandia, the theme could also be quantum.
DOE is making significant investments in the nation’s quantum computing capabilities through the creation of five Quantum Information System Centers. UNM will be involved with the Quantum Systems Accelerator (QSA) led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory funded at $115 million over the next five years. The center’s multidisciplinary expertise and network of world-class research facilities will enable the team to co-design the solutions needed to build working quantum systems that outperform today’s computers. The goal is to deliver prototype quantum systems that are optimized for major advances in scientific computing,
discoveries in fundamental physics, and breakthroughs
