An Innovation Revolution

Oak Ridge National Laboratory and its partners are ensuring American technological leadership via the development of quantum technologies that will drive 21st Century innovation.

Goals

Materials

The development of topological materials to overcome the fragility of the quantum state.

Algorithms

The creation and implementation of algorithms that exploit topological systems.

Devices and Sensors

The development, optimization, and demonstration of new quantum systems and supporting algorithms to measure exceptionally weak signals.

The Road Ahead

In order to accelerate innovation, researchers need new technologies to accurately predict, detect, and model complex phenomena such as energy generation and efficiency, national security, new materials discovery, and fundamental physics. This opportunity now exists by developing a new generation of technologies that exploits quantum mechanics to deliver much-needed advances in computation and sensing. The QSC is dedicated to overcoming key roadblocks in quantum state resilience, controllability, and ultimately the scalability of quantum technologies to realize the quantum future.

Integral to the activities of the QSC is the development of the next generation of scientists and engineers; by actively engaging students and postdoctoral associates in research activities, the Center offers a rich environment for professional development. Further, by working in close conjunction with industry from its inception, the QSC strongly couples its basic science foundation and technology development pathways to transition applications to the private sector.

QSC integrates capabilities to overcome roadblocks

By linking the unique capabilities of the national labs with leading university investigators, the QSC will advance the science of quantum materials, sensors, and algorithms in ways impossible through other means.
