A team of researchers led by an Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) faculty member performed the first-ever simulation of baryons—fundamental quantum particles—on a quantum computer.
With their results, the team has taken a step towards more complex quantum simulations that will allow scientists to study neutron stars, learn more about the earliest moments of the universe, and realize the revolutionary potential of quantum computers.

There are a few changes coming to the Institute for Quantum Computing’s (IQC) outreach program aimed at high school students next summer. The unique enrichment program previously known as the Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) that was held over nine-days in August will expand to two weeks of programming offered through a mix of both virtual and in-person learning in July, moving forward as the Quantum School for Young Students (QSYS).
