TAU launches new center for quantum science & tech

Written on |

The center will bring together twenty labs from across campus and offer academic programs as well as promote international ties

Tel Aviv University is proud to launch a new Center for Quantum Science and Technology, announced during the research workshop “From Quantum Computing to Quantum Chemistry.”
According to Tel Aviv University Rector, Prof. Yaron Oz: “The quantum revolution is knocking on our door, and many people expect it to be just as great and significant as the industrial and digital revolutions, completely transforming our technology and way of life,”
Prof. Oz also added that “Quantum theory, first developed more than a century ago, deals with phenomena at the level of tiny particles such as electrons and photons. Many quantum phenomena contradict human intuition and our experience in day to day reality.
“Leading TAU scientists, like Prof. Yakir Aharonov, have contributed significantly to our understanding of these phenomena. Applied quantum research is a relatively new field that is rapidly gaining momentum both in Israel and worldwide, and this is the right time to put considerable effort into it.”

Twenty labs from different disciplines

The new Center for Quantum Science and Technology is expected to bring together about twenty research labs from different faculties across campus, from a diverse array of scientific disciplines.
The Center will combine three main purposes: academic programs in relevant tracks such as quantum computing and quantum communication, designed to attract the best young minds to this innovative field, research activities based on TAU’s multidisciplinary nature, enabling collaborations between researchers from many different disciplines: computing, materials, sensors, chemistry, physics and mathematics, and later also economics, business and more.
It will also work forming international ties with research centers and business corporations – including giants like Google, IBM and Microsoft, who are developing quantum technologies, alongside potential consumers (like the financial sector), who must prepare for the advent of quantum computing.
The Center will also recruit new faculty members, organize conferences and workshops, and offer scholarships and fellowships for students.
