Scientific breakthroughs and technological developments in the quantum realm underpin our understanding of the fundamental nature of matter and energy and enable a wide range of practical applications. From material synthesis to data security, and from medical imaging to environmental sensors, quantum innovations are already shaping our lives – and offer the prospect of even more transformative advances in the coming decades. The Cornell Quantum Initiative builds on the university’s considerable strengths spanning foundational science, engineering and computing to drive the next phase of discovery, innovation and impact in quantum science and technology.
The interdisciplinary initiative brings together leading experts in the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering and the Cornell Bowers College of Computing and Information Science. Guided and supported by the deans of the three colleges, the faculty task force will foster collaborations, address emerging opportunities, recommend strategic investments and facilitate future recruitments.
