Q-NEXT’s mission to develop science and technology to control and distribute quantum information.
Quantum information scientists exploit a phenomenon called quantum entanglement to share information. Entanglement is a special, powerful correlation between quantum particles available only at nature’s smallest scales.
Q-NEXT tackles one of the most prominent challenges facing quantum information science today: manipulating and interconnecting entangled states of matter. To that end, Q-NEXT institutions and collaborators are building national resources to create new quantum materials, demonstrating simulation testbeds, and developing new technologies in quantum communication and sensing.
Research that comes out of Q-NEXT could transform how we live our everyday lives, from faster drug delivery to unhackable communication networks.
