DARPA Disruption Opportunity on Synthetic Quantum Nanostructures

(July 7, 2023) The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is sponsoring an Information Session webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of the Synthetic Quantum Nanostructures (SynQuaNon) Disruption Opportunity (DO), which is inviting submissions of innovative basic or applied research concepts in the technical domain of novel electronic metamaterials and nanostructures for applications to quantum-limited superconducting (SC) nanoelectronics. The Information Session will be held via webcast on July 10, 2023, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (Eastern Time). Advance registration is required to attend the webcast.

Disruption Opportunities are released as Presolicitation Notices under the Disruptioneering Program Announcement and are rapid, targeted, limited scope investments made as part of an overall balanced portfolio. Disruptioneering enables DARPA to initiate a new investment in less than 120 days from idea inception.

DARPA anticipate that successful proposals to the DO will inform and support a subsequent experimental program on new modalities of Superconducting (SC) nanoelectronic devices for applications to Quantum Information Science (QIS). DARPA anticipates that the full program solicitation will be released later this year.
