Welcome to the College of Engineering
Interdisciplinary Team Awarded Grants to Pursue Quantum Computing and Entanglement Research
Boise State staff scientist Ryan Pensack and Surface Science Lab manager Paul Davis of the Micron School for Materials Science and Engineering (MSMSE) have a passion for unraveling processes that unfold on extremely fast timescales. How fast, exactly? A millionth of a billionth of a second.
Pensack and Davis will be using such ultrafast lasers in their role as co-principal investigators on two recently awarded grants to study quantum computing and entanglement: a Department of Defense Office of Naval Research grant worth nearly $3.7 million over three years, and a Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research grant totaling $3 million over two years. If the initial two-year phase of the latter grant is successful, it can be extended an additional four years and supplemented by up to $10 million.
