Nuclear Physics & Quantum Information Science

IQuS News | October 1, 2019

The Nuclear Science Advisory Committee (NSAC) Subcommittee on Quantum Information Science (QIS) released its report in early November, Nuclear Physics and Quantum Information Science. David Hertzog, who leads UW’s Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics (CENPA) is the Chair of NSAC, and the National Institute for Nuclear Theory’s (INT) and UW’s Martin Savage is Chair of the QIS Subcommittee. Among the experimental, theoretical and computational nuclear physics research activities, the report identifies capabilities and expertise unique to nuclear physics that will advance QIS. Similarly, it identifies nuclear physics scientific objectives and grand challenges expected to benefit from present and future developments in QIS. The work of the nuclear physics community in these areas can support strongly, and on strategic timescales, a national program established by the National Quantum Initiative.
