UW Quantum Initative

Transforming how we communicate, compute, and sense our world

The QuantumX initiative at the University of Washington seeks to facilitate and support activities to accelerate quantum discoveries and technologies.

 

Focus Areas

QuantumX faculty and researchers are exploring the following areas:

Quantum Computation

Hardware, software, and algorithms to realize solutions to problems intractable on classical computers.

Quantum Materials

Materials development to enable quantum technologies and the study of materials whose properties emerge from quantum interactions.

Quantum Sensing

Using quantum coherence and entanglement to achieve new limits in sensing.

Quantum Communication and Networks

Hardware, software, and algorithms to realize secure communication protected by the laws of quantum mechanics. The development of quantum networks for scaling both communication and computation systems.

Quantum Simulation

Using controlled quantum systems to simulate materials from small molecules to solids, with applications ranging from more efficient electronics to clean energy.
