Innovating for Second Quantum Revolution - Lawrence Dumas Domain Dinner, Northwestern University, October 23, 2019


Members of the Initiative at Northwestern for Quantum Information Research and Engineering (INQUIRE) made presentations on the Faculty and Administration on frontiers in Quantum Information Science (QIS) at the Lawrence B. Dumas Domain Dinner on October 21. Professors Michael Wasielewski, James Sauls, Prem Kumar, Danna Freedman and Mark Hersam highlighted the challenges in QIS and Northwestern’s expertise in Quantum Computing, Quantum Communication, Quantum Sensing and Quantum Materials.

The week of October 21 was full of news on Quantum Computing, with a landmark paper published in Nature on October 23 reporting the achievement of ``Quantum Supremacy'' by a quantum computer with 53 superconducting Transmon Qubits, performing computations in about two and a half minutes that are projected to take 10,000 years on the powerful Summit Supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory [read more].
