November 14-15, 2019: The Northwest Quantum Nexus (NQN) is bringing together experts across many qubit platforms to define and seek solutions to the outstanding challenges in qubit transduction for a workshop at the University of Washington on November 14-15. This 2-day workshop will be organized into focus sessions on photon-photon transduction, photon-spin transduction, ion-superconducting qubit transduction, interfacing to topological qubits, and machine learning to facilitate quantum measurement, control, and transduction.
August 28, 2019: Edwin Barnes, Professor of Physics at Virginia Tech, will present at 1:30pm.
QuantumX awarded five undergraduate and masters students grants to fabricate nanoscale quantum devices at the Washington Nanofabrication Facility.
June 6, 2019: QuantumX, in partnership with the Institute for Nano-engineered Systems and the Northwest Quantum Nexus, is hosting Jeremey Hilton, Senior Vice President at the quantum computing company D-Wave Systems.
A team led by UW Professor Peter Pauzauskie discovered that they can use extremely high pressure and temperature to introduce other elements into nanodiamonds, making them potentially useful in quantum communications and quantum sensing. This work was done in collaboration with the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and published in Science Advances.
The Northwest Quantum Nexus was unveiled during a two-day summit at the UW, an event that included scientists and engineers from the three keystone institutions, as well as potential partners in academia and industry from across the Pacific Northwest.
March 18-19, 2019: UW QuantumX is partnering with Microsoft and PNNL to host the Northwest Quantum Nexus Summit.
