In a new study, scientists at the University of Chicago and Argonne demonstrated control of atomic quantum memories in silicon carbide, a common material found in electric cars and LED light bulbs. Then, they used this control to create an “entangled state,” representing a connection between the quantum memories and electrons trapped in the semiconductor material.

To continue guiding investments in quantum research, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) created a new National Quantum Initiative Advisory Committee (NQIAC). Among the 23 inaugural members of the committee is UChicago CS Professor Fred Chong, lead investigator of the Enabling Practical-Scale Quantum Computing (EPIQC) collaboration.
