Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
July 16, 2021
Farah Fahim, a Fermilab engineer, has been awarded an Early Career Research Award to study the application of neural networks in small areas within the pixel detector of the Large Hadron Collider. The technique is called “artificial intelligence on-chip” with the long-term objective of real-time particle track reconstruction. Fahim has a doctorate in electrical engineering and has worked at Fermilab for 12 years, developing pixel detectors for a variety of applications.
Argonne National Laboratory
July 13, 2021
Research from scientists at Argonne paves the way for improved information transfer in both classical and quantum regimes. The new technology allows real-time control of information transfer between microwave photons and magnons. Relevant potential applications for the discovery include signal switching, low-power computing and quantum networking.
Researchers, partners and trainees exchange knowledge and insights at CQE Member and Partner Workshop
Chicago Quantum Exchange
July 1, 2021
In April 2021, the Chicago Quantum Exchange hosted the third annual Chicago Quantum Exchange (CQE) Member and Partner Workshop. The two-day workshop provided opportunities to hear from CQE partners; engage in technical discussions spanning quantum communication, sensors and detectors, and quantum computing and algorithms; and for CQE trainees to discuss their work with the members and partners.
Quantum Creators Prize Symposium
The University of Chicago invites applications for its first annual “Quantum Creators Prize Symposium”, which will recognize the achievements of early career researchers in the broad areas of Quantum Science and Engineering. The symposium will be held virtually.
Program dates: September 29-30, 2021
