The Future of Information Processing is Quantum

Putting Quantum Computers to Work

The Duke Quantum Center is a unique “vertical” quantum institute that conducts research on the entire stack of a quantum information system. We’ve pioneered the world’s leading quantum information processing architecture, so rather than focusing solely on theoretical questions or experimental research with quantum components, we’re co-designing the entire quantum information stack, from qubit components and control of entangling operations up to applications and algorithms — plus everything in between.
