The Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) is a publicly funded research organization dedicated to basic and applied research in quantum physics, with particular emphasis on quantum information science. Located on the campus of the University of Maryland (UMD) at College Park, Maryland, Joint Quantum Institute was created on September 11, 2006 by a joint memorandum of understanding among University of Maryland, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Laboratory for Physical Sciences. It has a base annual budget of approximately $6 million, which supports both theory and experimental research by Joint Quantum Institute’s 27 Fellows, associated graduate students and postdoctoral scientists. Joint Quantum Institute’s co-directors are Steve Rolston, Professor of Physics at University of Maryland, and Charles W. Clark, Adjunct Professor of Physics at University of Maryland. Approximately half the Joint Quantum Institute fellows are from University of Maryland and half from NIST. One is from the Laboratory for Physical Sciences, a university-government facility adjacent to the UMD College Park campus.

Bilayer graphene inspires two-universe cosmological model

Physicists sometimes come up with crazy stories that sound like science fiction. Some turn out to be true, like how the curvature of space and time described by Einstein was eventually borne out by astronomical measurements. ...

Tug-of-war unlocks menagerie of quantum phases of matter

Phases are integral to how we define our world. We navigate through the phases of our lives, from child to teenager to adult, chaperoned along the way by our changing traits and behaviors. Nature, too, undergoes phase changes. ...

Enhancing simulations of curved space with qubits

One of the mind-bending ideas that physicists and mathematicians have come up with is that space itself—not just objects in space—can be curved. When space curves (as happens dramatically near a black hole), sizes and ...

Novel design may boost efficiency of on-chip frequency combs

On the cover of the Pink Floyd album Dark Side of the Moon, a prism splits a ray of light into all the colors of the rainbow. This multicolored medley, which owes its emergence to the fact that light travels as a wave, is ...

New approach to information transfer reaches quantum speed limit

Even though quantum computers are a young technology and aren't yet ready for routine practical use, researchers have already been investigating the theoretical constraints that will bound quantum technologies. One of the ...

Researchers generate tunable twin particles of light

Identical twins might seem 'indistinguishable,' but in the quantum world the word takes on a new level of meaning. While identical twins share many traits, the universe treats two indistinguishable quantum particles as intrinsically ...

Enhanced frequency doubling adds to photonics toolkit

The digital age has seen electronics, including computer chips, shrink in size at an amazing rate, with ever tinier chips powering devices like smartphones, laptops and even autonomous drones. In the wake of this progress, ...
