NSF Invests $29 Million in Quantum Sensors

(August 24, 2023) Eighteen new projects are part of the National Science Foundation’s strategy to realize the scientific and technological advances called for in the National Science and Technology Council report, Bringing Quantum Sensors to Fruition, and the National Quantum Initiative Act.

“For decades, scientific exploration at the quantum scale has yielded surprising discoveries about how our universe works — and tantalizing possibilities for quantum-enabled technologies,” says NSF Director Sethuraman Panchanathan. “We are now taking the next step in quantum research through these projects and others, which combine fundamental research with potential applications that can positively impact our lives, our economic prosperity and our competitiveness as a nation.”
