From Crain's Chicago Business, Sept. 20, 2018: University of Chicago Professor David Awschalom says that accelerating quantum research is critical for Chicago, which is uniquely positioned to help lead the nation, thanks to the University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab. The decisions we make now will determine the role the U.S. plays in a technology that could deliver a generational leap forward if we are bold enough to seize the opportunity.
What we do
