Quantum Engineering

The U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration has designated Elevate Quantum as a Regional Technology Hub for Quantum Information Technology. A regional consortium of over 70 organizations, including Mines, Elevate Quantum is driving innovation in Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming.
In a paper recently published in the journal Nature, a team of physicists from Colorado School of Mines, Duke University, Michigan State University, and the University of Maryland realized the dream of building a 1D magnet using a trapped-ion quantum simulator.
Jessica Lawson, a PhD student in materials science, and Paul Varosy, a master’s student in quantum engineering, have been awarded the 2023 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. The
Meenakshi Singh, associate professor of physics at Colorado School of Mines, has won a Fulbright-Nehru Professional and Academic Excellence Award to conduct quantum physics research at one of the top
Mines' Jeff Squier and CSU's Randy Bartels were recently awarded a $1.2 million grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to build the electronics and light detectors fast enough to capture and count single photons.
“Quantum technologies are poised to revolutionize how we compute, communicate and sense and this requires engineers that have an interdisciplinary education,” Mines' Peter Aaen said.
