About Us

the quantum computing conversation...

QCWG is a collection of faculty with an interest in quantum computing. The focus of group activities is the design, fabrication and web implementation of the Wake Quantum Chip. Utilizing the cleanroom and fabrication facilities at the Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials at Wake, a new type of topological entanglement QuBit is being implemented into a  multi-Qubit chip. The goal is to allow general, off-campus users to interface with the chip through a wake-designed web portal and programming environment. 

The team consists of physicists, computer scientists, chemists, and scientists in BioInformatics. Undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral, and visiting scientists are working together on the WFU campus to create an atmosphere of interdisciplinary partnership.
