The awards from the Department of Energy (DOE) will study the materials and chemical processes needed to develop the next generation of quantum smart devices and quantum computing technology. The projects will last up to 3 years and will perform fundamental research to understand, predict, and ultimately control matter and energy at the electronic, atomic, and molecular levels. Twenty-two of the awards were made to universities and seven were made to one of the DOE’s national laboratories. A news release announcing the awards can be found on the DOE website here and a list of the 29 awards can be found here.
