QNN awarded AFOSR MURI Grant

We are happy to announce that we were awarded an AFOSR MURI grant as part of a team of researchers at MIT, Harvard and Yale. The goal of this program is to develop scalable quantum technologies and protocols. Find out more here.

Program abstract

The rules of quantum mechanics enable technologies that are inherently more powerful than their classical counterparts, including unconditionally secure communication and quantum computing, and quantum-enhanced precision sensing. Translating quantum technologies to room-temperature semiconductor systems is key to making them practical and scalable. However, a central challenge is the need for fundamentally improved quantum measurement and state verification (QMSV) techniques to overcome major limitations of today’s theoretical and experimental tools. The goal of this program is to establish general and optimal QMSV protocols to solve the challenges. The program seeks to develop essential measurement-based algorithmic primitives that form an efficient, unifying language for quantum algorithms.
