Attendees at the QED-C Workshop on Cryogenic Technology for QIST held in Bozeman, Montana November 6 – 7, 2019.
November 7, 2019
uantum Design took part in a workshop, held by the Quantum Economic Development Consortium (QED-C), to identify cryogenic technology advances that will enable a ten-fold improvement in quantum information science and technology (QIST) in the next decade—10X10. Quantum computing based on superconducting technologies is just one example of a quantum application that requires cooling to ultra-low temperatures. QED-C participants, who are from across the quantum ecosystem, will use the workshop output to create a roadmap for cryogenic technologies for QIST applications. A select group of experts gathered in Bozeman to assess needs and develop a roadmap for cryogenic technologies to accelerate QIST R&D and commercialization. Top U.S. cryogenic companies participated, including Advanced Research Systems, ColdEdge, Creare, Cryomech, HPD, Janis Research, Lake Shore Cryotronics, Montana Instruments, and Quantum Design, as well as experts from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
