Brookhaven National Laboratory was selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science to lead one of the five National Quantum Information Science (QIS) Research Centers. Brookhaven Lab will lead the Co-design Center for Quantum Advantage (C2QA), which will focus on quantum computing.
Over the next five years, C2QA will be awarded up to $115 million to build the fundamental tools necessary for the United States to create scalable, distributed, and fault-tolerant quantum computer systems. The C2QA team comprises several national labs, research centers, universities, and industry. Among their collaborators, Brookhaven has partnered with Prof. Michael Hatridge at the University of Pittsburgh.
