Q-NEXT has added two new corporate partners to its collaboration: Verizon and Zurich Instruments USA, Inc.

Verizon and Zurich Instruments join Q-NEXT national quantum science center

Argonne, IL | Posted on August 6th, 2021

Q-NEXT, a National Quantum Information Science Research Center led by the U.S. Department of Energy抯 (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, is a partnership of three national laboratories, nine universities and, with the new addition, 12 leading U.S. quantum technology companies.

The Q-NEXT mission is to develop the science and technology to control, store and transmit quantum information, whether the information is distributed over the length of a computer chip or the distance between Chicago and San Francisco. Q-NEXT collaborators are working together toward this goal by developing new quantum materials and instruments that outperform current technology.

揑抦 delighted that Verizon and Zurich Instruments have joined Q-NEXT. Both are global leaders in communication and tech innovation, and their collaboration will help us realize our vision to enable quantum technologies for science and society.??Q-NEXT Director David Awschalom

Unlike traditional information technologies, such as the internet or smart phone, quantum information technologies work by taking advantage of physics that operates at nature抯 smallest scales, manipulating information encoded in matter抯 quantum properties. The successful development of such technologies can lead to unhackable communication channels, ultraprecise sensors and more powerful computers.

Quantum information can be conveyed through a quantum network, analogous to our current internet. The secure and efficient transmission of information over a quantum network places new requirements on lasers, sensors and optical fiber. Verizon抯 expertise in networking and security will ensure that key requirements are considered in Q-NEXT抯 technology R&D roadmap.

揤erizon is excited to be participating with national laboratory, academic and commercial teams in the quantum communications group at Q-NEXT," said Jean McManus, executive director of applied research at Verizon. "We look forward to contributing to the center's roadmap.?br>
Zurich Instruments brings innovation to advanced instrumentation in quantum technologies, enabling the reliable control and measurement of quantum information. Zurich Instruments?goal is to support quantum researchers and engineers by allowing them to focus on developing quantum devices, even as they benefit from the most advanced traditional electronics and software. The company will collaborate with Q-NEXT by participating in all its major research areas, including partnering on cutting-edge projects and training the future quantum workforce.

揥e are thrilled to be part of Q-NEXT. Our goal is to offer the best quantum technologies to support fundamental and applied research," said Vikrant Mahajan, vice president, sales and operations of Zurich Instruments USA, Inc. "Partnering with leading quantum organizations worldwide allows us to remain at the forefront of technology. We look forward to collaborating with national lab, academic and industry partners at Q-NEXT.?br>
Collaborators at the two companies will join Q-NEXT抯 nearly 100 researchers, who have been actively working for the past 10 months on developing the organization抯 quantum technology roadmap and preparing for the completion of its two national foundries. The foundries will act as a 搎uantum factory,?producing a robust supply chain of high-quality, standardized quantum materials and devices.

Industry collaboration is vital to the Q-NEXT mission. Members of industry are embedded in every level of the organization. Active industry engagement enables Q-NEXT to effectively target the needs of technology consumers and translate research into practical technologies.

Through industry partnerships, Q-NEXT also boosts the growth of the quantum workforce, as partner companies embed students and early-career professionals among their staff to work on the most pressing problems in quantum science.

揑抦 delighted that Verizon and Zurich Instruments have joined Q-NEXT. Both are global leaders in communication and tech innovation, and their collaboration will help us realize our vision to enable quantum technologies for science and society,?said Q-NEXT Director David Awschalom, an Argonne National Laboratory senior scientist, University of Chicago Liew Family professor in molecular engineering and physics and vice dean for research and infrastructure, and Chicago Quantum Exchange director. 揟heir partnership, along with those of all Q-NEXT collaborators, strengthens the ecosystem in which we all work to advance this exciting, burgeoning area of quantum information science.?br>
Q-NEXT is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science.
