A blog written by quantum researchers for quantum researchers and those interested in their work.

How do you make a 4,000 square foot museum exhibition about an invisible science?

Artist's rendition of QUANTUM: The Exhibition

Following a PhD in experimental quantum information and a two-year stint as a postdoctoral researcher, I have been fortunate enough to land my dream job. For the last six years, I have been a full-time outreach scientist. My job is to communicate and teach the wonders of quantum information science and technology to a variety of audiences: from high school students and teachers, to undergraduate students, the general public, government officials and members of the high tech industry.

New Electron Beam Lithography equipment at Quantum NanoFab

The Quantum NanoFab is used by many researchers at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) to build new quantum structures for study in their labs. It is a cleanroom laboratory that uses technologies from the microelectronics industry in order to enable the fabrication of a variety of experimental quantum devices. As the Quantum NanoFab’s resident process engineer I would like to talk briefly about electron beam lithography in general and our new JEOL JBX-6300FS electron beam lithography tool in particular.

USEQIP students take on the IBM Quantum Experience
