ORD LINCS: Engineering Quantum Technologies
The Office of Research Development (ORD) is hosting a networking event focused on quantum technologies and computational theory.
The ORD LINC Series is designed to highlight research across Northwestern departments and schools in a specific topic area that has been emphasized for federal research funding. The NSF has recently named “The Quantum Leap: Leading the Next Quantum Revolution” as one of their 10 Big Ideas for Future NSF Investments. The DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences (BES) sponsored a large strategic workshop, “Basic Research Needs Workshop on Quantum Materials for Energy-relevant Technology,” in 2016. DoD agencies have recently released several calls for proposals related to quantum technologies and algorithms.
The event will include presentations by the faculty listed below on their research and perspectives, followed by discussion, networking, and lunch (for registered participants):
- Prem Kumar, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
- Jens Koch, Physics
- Danna Freedman, Chemistry
- James Rondinelli, Materials Science and Engineering
The event will be held on the Evanston campus (location TBD). Registration is required. To attend, please complete the registration form by June 15, 2017.
Please join us to explore how your research could apply to the diverse funding opportunities related to quantum technologies, and to network with other Northwestern researchers.
