U-M launches institute to accelerate quantum research, education

From the atomic clocks that power GPS navigation to MRI scans that detect cancerous tumors, fundamental advancements in quantum engineering, science and technology continue to revolutionize how the world operates.

The next quantum revolution could introduce computers that operate a million times faster, quantum internet to distribute information more securely and quantum engineering approaches that yield sustainability innovations such as carbon capture and energy harvesting.

To solve global quantum challenges and prepare a next-generation workforce to catalyze new discoveries, the University of Michigan will invest $55 million to launch a multidisciplinary Quantum Research Institute and recruit up to eight new faculty members with expertise in quantum.
