Microwaves have enabled numerous classical technologies, in part because they propagate through air with little energy loss. Using novel approaches, we are working to demonstrate the generation of two or more entangled microwave photons. The photons themselves can be used for quantum communication or can be used on-chip to entangle separated parts of a quantum processor. We are also working toward other milestones, such as using microwaves to demonstrate remote entanglement of qubits. One of our goals is to boost capability for quantum communication, which can lead to a next-generation Internet, and which is a focal point in the quantum space race that has emerged with other nations. We also expect our work to advance the field of quantum computing.
Qubits and Quantum Effects in Biology
It is unknown whether biological processes make direct use of quantum effects, as opposed to depending merely on the influence of quantum physics on chemical bonding and molecular structure.

A Reformulation of Quantum Game Theory
Summary Classical game theory – conducted at the interface between economics and computer science – has found applications in topics ranging from networking and security to online markets. Despite over 20 years of research into connections between game theory and quantum information, we have yet to see any significant implications of quantum information when applied […]

Spin-transfer Torque Magnetic Random Access Memory for On-chip Spin Information Storage
Summary Leakage power in semiconductor memories, such as Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) and Static Random Access Memory (SRAM), can be substantial and is one of the limits for scalability of classical electronics. This is attributed to the fact that the information stored is volatile, requiring constant refreshing, as well as reprogramming upon powering […]
