Center for Quantum Information and Control Receives Multi-million-dollar Award

The Center for Quantum Information and Control (CQuIC) received a $2.2 million, five-year award from the National Science Foundation to become a Focused Research Hub in Theoretical Physics (FRHTP), one of two in the United States.  CQuIC is now searching for up to four postdoctoral fellows, working in theoretical quantum information science, under the auspices of the FRHTP.  The FRHTP award attracted the attention of Albuquerque Journal staff writer Kevin Robinson/Avila, who described CQuIC and the FRHTP award in his Tech Bytes column  in the Journal.


SQuInT 2017

Every year CQuIC organizes the Annual Workshop of the Southwest Quantum Information and Technology (SQuInT) Network.  The 19th Annual SQuInT Workshop will be held at LSU on February 23-25, 2017 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and will be co-organized by Akimasa Miyake of UNM and Mark Wilde of LSU.

Beautiful Louisiana State University campus

SQuInTing in the Southwest


The Southwest Quantum Information and Technology (SQuInT) Network is CQuIC’s chief outreach activity.  The 18th Annual Workshop was held in Albuquerque this February.  Now’s the time to put the 19th Annual Workshop on your calendar.  It will be held in Baton Rouge, February 23-25, 2017.  And, for all you long-time SQuInTers, walk down nostalgia lane with Ivan Deutsch’s brief  story of SQuInT, SQuInTing in the Southwest



New Quantum Optics track at the OSE program at UNM

The Optical Science and Engineering program at the University of New Mexico recently announced its new Quantum Optics track. Topics in the Quantum Optics concentration include optics, lasers, quantum optics, quantum mechanics and quantum information science. Students in the Quantum Optics track can chose from a diverse range of elective courses in Physics and Engineering including: Physics of Semiconductors, Materials and Devices, Digital Image Processing, Quantum Information Theory, Computation. This track offers students the possibility to get experience in applied and fundamental quantum optics and quantum devices, while building a strong background in quantum information.
