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.
Magnetoelectric Coupling in New Composite Multiferroic Nanostructures as High-Density Quantum Multistate Memory Elements
Summary Magnetoelectric multiferroics are materials that exhibit correlated ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties (i.e., a magnetoelectric effect). The resulting ability of these materials to simultaneously store data in electric polarization and magnetic moment could increase data storage density and data processing speed while reducing energy consumption. This project aims to design and fabricate new composite multiferroic […]

Folk Understanding of Quantum Physics
Summary It is often said that quantum concepts are counterintuitive. However, quantum concepts may not be equally counterintuitive to people from all cultural backgrounds. As cultural psychologists have discovered, culture fundamentally shapes the way people make sense of the world. In particular, the last few decades of research have documented cultural differences in appreciation of […]

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 […]
