Our first three years at Q-NEXT have been tremendously productive. The collaboration has commissioned new quantum foundries at Argonne and SLAC, reported over 120 Q-NEXT supported results, including a Roadmap for Quantum Interconnects, filed multiple patents and software copyrights, and contributed to the training of more than 130 students and postdoctoral associates. Starting in Year 4, advances in sensors and communication devices, theory, and systems will be integrated into testable networks and links. Foundry materials will enable the creation of a database to serve the broader QIST community, and co-development of networking theory and components will help us demonstrate entanglement distribution for integrated sensing and communications systems.
Demonstrating the impact of the National Quantum Initiative and the National Quantum Information Science Research Centers can help reinforce the important role they’re having in this critically important field.
One area we regularly highlight is science that’s been enabled by Q-NEXT support. It is especially important that we follow DOE guidance for acknowledging Q-NEXT support in peer-reviewed articles and technical papers both by referencing center support and by including a short description delineating the contribution of that support.
As you let us know about your publications at [email protected], we’re also interested in hearing about other impacts that Q-NEXT support has had, including for instance new collaborations that have developed, impacts to the emerging quantum workforce such as graduating students or postdoctoral researchers moving into new positions, or public-facing events that have helped increase awareness of QIST concepts and opportunities.
Thank you for your support over these past three years. We look forward to the many discoveries, new understandings, and exciting new approaches and opportunities that will come from the Q-NEXT collaboration.
