New PAIS facility will help Center stay on the cutting edge

Quantum information science is going to change the world. Being able to manipulate and control individual atoms and other microscopic systems to do jobs in communications, sensing and computation will have an impact on nearly every aspect of our daily lives. And, for the University of New Mexico’s Center for Quantum Information & Control (CQuIC), a new multi-million-dollar grant will allow UNM to continue at the forefront of this innovative field.  

“Our particular emphasis is on control of the behavior of quantum systems,” said Carlton Caves, Distinguished Professor of Physics & Astronomy and the Center’s director. “Broadly speaking, we are involved in trying to make systems at the microscopic and nanoscopic level do jobs that we want them to do, instead of just doing what comes naturally.”
