Quantum Research Initiatives


Quantum Research Initiatives

2/17/2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST

In February, Dean Rashid Bashir moderated a virtual discussion with expert Illinois faculty on the college's quantum research initiatives. You can find a similar conversation we hosted on AI research initiatives here. Both webinars include faculty presentations followed by a live Q&A. 

You can adjust your video settings by hovering over the video and clicking the buttons that appear on the right side of the screen.

Additional Resources:

  • Presentation slides
  • Centers and additional resources discussed during the event
    • The Quantum Atlas - With The Quantum Atlas, we aim to provide an approachable guide to quantum physics for non-experts using images, animations, short podcasts and written explanations of the most fundamental quantum concepts.
    • Illinois Quantum Information Science and Technology Center (IQUIST) - IQUIST brings together physicists, electrical engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, entrepreneurs, and other experts to accelerate growing efforts in quantum information science (QIS) at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. 
    • Hybrid Quantum Architectures and Networks (HQAN) - Directed by Brian DeMarco, HQAN is one of three NSF-funded Quantum Leap Challenge Institutes. It features three quantum testbeds that will collaboratively develop the technology needed to assemble a hybrid quantum processor and network. 
    • Q2Work - Q2Work is an ambitious program funded by the National Science Foundation that facilitates the National Q-12 Education Partnership and provides support for quantum education workforce development across the country.  

Our Roadmap for the Future:

In May 2020 we launched our college's strategic plan. This plan is foundational to how we prioritize initiatives and will guide our future decisions. Learn more 

Make an impact with Grainger Engineering:

You can play an important role in allowing the college to strategically invest in critical initiatives and advance our work by contributing to the Grainger Engineering Priority Fund, which provides this vital, unrestricted support. Learn more
