August 26, 2020- We are excited to be part of one of the five newly selected Department of Energy’s National Quantum Initiatives Centers announced by DOE.

SQMS research will focus on optimizing the length of time of that a “qubit,” the basic element of a quantum computer, can effectively process information. Understanding and mitigating the physical processes that limit performance of superconducting qubits is critical to realizing next-generation quantum computers and sensors.
