New $115 million Quantum Systems Accelerator to pioneer quantum technologies for discovery science
Posted: August 28, 2020
The Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded $115 million over five years to the Quantum Systems Accelerator (QSA), a new research center led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) that will forge the technological solutions needed to harness quantum information science for discoveries that benefit the world.
“The Center for Quantum Information and Control (CQuIC) is excited to be part of the Quantum Systems Accelerator (QSA), led by Lawerence Berkeley National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory, one of five new Department of Energy Quantum Information Science Centers, part of the National Quantum Initiative Act of 2018,” said Ivan Deutsch, Regents’ Professor & CQuIC director. “The QSA will catalyze national leadership in quantum information science (QIS) to co-design the algorithms, quantum devices, and engineering solutions needed to deliver certified quantum advantage in Department of Energy scientific applications.”
