The U.S. Department of Energy announced today that it has awarded scientists at its Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory more than $10 million to spur research that could revolutionize not only our understanding of nature, but also the very way we investigate it.

Quantum science is a cutting-edge field of research made possible through the unique effects of quantum physics. The best known examples are quantum computing, quantum sensors and quantum teleportation, all of which Fermilab researchers will be working on in the coming years. This work – and the technology that enables it – is beyond complex, but Fermilab’s scientists and engineers, in partnership with other institutions and industry, have discovered new ways to make use of quantum effects to understand the universe.
