Professor Sebastian Will and Professor Ana Asenjo-Garcia together with Professor Nanfang Yu (Applied Physics) have received a $2M collaborative research grant for the project "Enhancing Quantum Coherence by Dissipation in Programmable Atomic Arrays.” The project has been awarded within the National Science Foundation’s Quantum Idea Incubator - Transformational Advances in Quantum Systems (QII-TAQS) program and is one of the first to be chosen for federal funding in quantum research since the announcement of the National Quantum Initiative Act that was signed into law last December.
Professor Georgia Karagiorgi has been awarded an NSF collaborative grant for the research titled "WoU-MMA: Development of an Advanced Data Selection System for the DUNE Far Detector".
