Abstract: D04.00001 : Enabling Quantum Leap: Opportunities at NSF
7:30 PM–7:50 PM
In May of 2016, the Director of NSF unveiled Big Ideas, developed to answer important societal problems while building the transdisciplinary portfolio of focused fundamental research over the next decade. One of these ideas, "Quantum Leap", advances quantum technologies of the future: quantum communication, quantum computing, quantum sensors and quantum simulators. The powerful language provided by quantum mechanics almost a century ago becomes the foundation upon which to build new industries. This process, sometimes called "the second quantum revolution" is marked by the development of practical and marketable solutions for quantum technologies. Several programs within NSF, including Condensed Matter Physics Program, couple strongly to the Quantum Leap Big Idea. Relevant funding opportunities will be presented.
The American Physical Society (APS) is a non-profit membership organization working to advance the knowledge of physics.
