Quantum Information Science and Engineering
Quantum information science and engineering (QISE) is having a transformative impact on various fields by utilizing the principles of quantum mechanics to develop advanced technologies with unparalleled capabilities. QISE has the potential to revolutionize computing power, communication systems, sensing and imaging technologies, cryptography, and simulation capabilities, opening up new avenues for solving complex problems and driving innovation across industries, leading to profound societal and scientific advancements.
There have been exciting advances in numerous fields, such as quantum hardware, quantum software, simulation, communication, sensing, and imaging, with the aim of developing quantum systems that surpass their classical counterparts in performance and capabilities.
IBM Quantum Hub at NC State
The mission of the IBM Quantum Hub at NC State is to partner with our members to develop their quantum teams and explore promising use cases, to promote the growth of quantum computing across NC State, and to advance real-world applications of quantum computing globally.
The IBM Quantum Hub at NC State is structured as a hub and spoke model of engagement, and members can represent industry, academia or government. Each entity, including NC State, has their own dedicated access slot with equal priority cloud-based remote access with the goal of exploring practical applications important to business and science.
Presently each member has access to a variety of IBM’s quantum processors ranging from 1 to 65 qubits. Access through the IBM Quantum Hub also allows pulse-level control of qubit operations through the OpenPulse API. Pulse-level control is critical to enhancing the performance of the present generation of noisy, intermediate-scale quantum (NISQ) computers, and this capability is only available through an IBM Quantum Hub.
Congratulations to ECE Professor, John Muth, for receiving the 2022 Outstanding Research Award.
North Carolina State University has been investigating the potential of indium gallium nitride (InGaN) for enhancing the performance of III-nitride light-emitting diodes (LEDs)
A new process uses existing techniques to make more efficient LEDs and lasers.
NC State will be the first university in North America to establish an IBM Quantum Computing Hub as part of the global IBM Q Network, a collaboration of top Fortune 500 companies, universities and research labs working with tech powerhouse IBM to advance quantum computing.
Collaboration between researchers at Bedair Group, North Carolina State University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), shows the high potential of quantum wells in multi-junction solar cells.
Triangle Quantum Computing Seminar Series
The quantum research groups at UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke University and N.C. State host a weekly Triangle Quantum Computing Seminar Series throughout the school year, inviting experts from around the globe.
