The goal of the Columbia Quantum Initiative is to bring quantum technology out of the lab and make it available for massive adoption in information science, health, sensing, and metrology. As the invention of the transistor revolutionized electronics, recent developments in quantum science represent the next revolution in technology that will effect every aspect of society. Quantum cryptography will ensure perfectly secure communications for financial transactions, while the exquisite sensitivity of quantum sensors will open new vistas to single human cells and to black holes at the edge of the universe.
"Columbia is absolutely committed to pushing the boundaries of quantum science and engineering discovery. The quantum community within our faculty spans both the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, leveraging substantial expertise in materials science, modern optics, measurement, and theory and computation. We will continue to make cutting-edge advancements in partnership with academic, federal, and corporate institutions."
- G. Michael Purdy, Executive Vice President for Research
Quantum Themes at Columbia
Columbia's leadership spans five pivotal fields directly aligning with the National Quantum Initiative's efforts on communication, computation, and sensing.
Quantum Initiative Task Force
Columbia's world-leading researchers are ideally positioned to create and engineer future robust quantum systems that can make quantum technologies accessible to all. The Columbia Quantum Initiative will serve as a hub for the region, attracting and educating the next generation of leaders in quantum science and engineering to stimulate interactions with our industrial, non-profit, and academic partners, federal agencies, and national research laboratories.
Columbia quantum centers convene many academic, corporate, philanthropic, and non-profit organizations to achieve success.
