Quantum Research and Education to Power the Future
Science at quantum scale controls chemistry and the behavior of materials, therefore the “second quantum revolution” develops new electronics and digital information technologies. Quantum materials host collective electronic phenomena that exhibit unconventional behaviors and can potentially serve as the basis for entirely new computing concepts. Advancements in technology are inevitably driven by the combination of new, nonclassical materials, sensors, and algorithms. Success in such areas requires a new generation of interdisciplinary researchers who approach quantum with an open mind.
The Quantum Science and Engineering Center (QSEC) at George Mason University supports the exploration of these high-risk high-reward ideas by fostering a collaborative, interdisciplinary, community-focused environment at Mason. This provides a unique environment for graduate students, undergraduate students, and postdoctoral researchers to make transformative contributions to quantum technology.
