Investigating quantum bits in semiconductors


Graduate students Erzsebet Vincent (left) and Paul Klimov (now at Google) investigate quantum bits in semiconductors at the University of Chicago’s (UChicago) Institute for Molecular Engineering. The institute is heading a new, nationwide graduate student training program for quantum science and engineering called Quantum Information Science and Engineering Network (QISE-Net), funded by the National Science Foundation.
