QED-C® Announces Four Projects Designed to Advance Cryogenics for Quantum Information Science and Technology
The program aims to address gaps and barriers to progress in quantum computing, networking, communication and sensing
MENLO PARK, Calif., May 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C), managed by SRI International, in strategic partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), today announced a $2.3 million research program to advance cryogenic technologies that will enable innovation in quantum information science and technology (QIST). The program aims to address gaps identified by QED-C members as barriers to progress in applications of QIST for computing, networking and communication and sensing.
"This program will help accelerate the pace of U.S. innovation and commercialization in the field of quantum," said Celia Merzbacher, QED-C executive director. "QED-C plans for additional research opportunities for consortium members in the coming year in an effort to remove further barriers and enable advances in quantum technology and applications."
The program consists of four projects that will be led by QED-C member companies, FormFactor, Inc., Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation, Quantum Opus, LLC. and Triton Systems, Inc.
"Advancing cryogenic systems benefits many quantum applications and will accelerate the dissemination of quantum technologies," Ullom said.
