The Korea-U.S. Science Cooperation Center (KUSCO) announced five different centers to foster collaboration between U.S. and Korean universities on various quantum research projects. These include:

  • The Center for Quantum Error Correction with the Korea Institute of Science and Technology’s Center, NIST, and the University of Chicago
  • The Ion-trap Quantum Computing Center with Ewha Womans University and Duke University
  • The Spin Quantum Computing Center with Korea University and the California Institute of Technology
  • The Entanglement-based Quantum Network Center with the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science and The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
  • The Quantum Repeater Center with the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and Harvard University
  • The Quantum Sensing Center with Korea University and the University of California, Santa Barbara and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology

In addition, two professors from the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) were awarded $1 million to co-lead the creation of The Center for Quantum Error Correction. Also, a new Korea-US Quantum Technology Cooperation Center was open in Washington, D.C. last week to help provide support for quantum projects between the two countries.

Additional information about these activities is available in a press release posted on the University of Chicago web site here and also a news article posted on the Korea Times website here.
