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.
Using Interactive Digital Storytelling to Represent Transformative Quantum Technologies in Augmented/Extended Reality Environments
Summary A major roadblock to the broader adoption of quantum technologies is the long learning curve associated with their seemingly abstract concepts. This often renders quantum technologies inaccessible to most audiences, especially through explanations using conventional scientific language. In this project, we develop novel methods of interactive digital storytelling – augmented and extended reality (AR/XR) […]

Tuning Spin-Exchange Interactions in Low-Dimensional Metal Halide Perovskites: A New Class of Semiconductor Quantum Materials
Summary Leakage current in electronic components is one of the limiting factors for the performance of conventional computers which use charges and currents as physical information carriers. Spintronics offers an alternative by using electron spin for information transfer, processing and storage, enabling the design of non-volatile computer memory and more energy-efficient electronic devices. In this […]

Hybrid Quantum Materials towards Topological Quantum Computing
Summary Proximity engineered hybrid materials have shown promise for topological quantum information processing. This form of quantum computing provides a stable, error-tolerant approach for building scalable quantum information processors. Topological quantum computing relies on braiding non-Abelian particles, such as Majorana fermions, which do not exist in nature. One can however use materials engineering to […]
