NSF seeks potential platforms for quantum communications
April 12, 2018
NSF aims to push the frontiers of engineering in quantum information science and technology.
As part of that effort, a new NSF Dear Colleague Letter seeks collaborative, multidisciplinary proposals that span quantum device and circuit technology and system-level concepts in the design, analysis, development, and demonstration of integrated quantum communication systems.
Research in this area supports The Quantum Leap and Growing Convergence Research, two of the 10 Big Ideas for Future NSF Investments.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2018, its budget is $7.8 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
