    Princeton University has announced the creation of the Princeton Quantum Initiative to foster research and training across the spectrum from fundamental quantum science to its application in areas such as computing, sensing and communications.

    The new initiative builds on Princeton's world-renowned expertise in quantum science, the area of physics that describes behaviors at the scale of atoms and electrons. Quantum technologies have the potential to revolutionize areas ranging from secure data transmission to biomedical research, to the discovery of new materials.

  • First summer of IBM-Princeton undergraduate quantum research program a success

    Wednesday, Sep 25, 2019

    Already collaborators in quantum research, Princeton University and IBM launched a unique program for undergraduates in 2019. The inaugural Quantum Undergraduate Research at IBM and Princeton (QURIP) summer school offered ten students from across the United States the opportunity to engage in both theoretical and experimental research in quantum information.

  • Strange warping geometry helps to push scientific boundaries

    Monday, Jul 15, 2019
    by Molly Sharlach, Office of Engineering Communications

    Atomic interactions in everyday solids and liquids are so complex that some of these materials’ properties continue to elude physicists’ understanding. Solving the problems mathematically is beyond the capabilities of modern computers, so scientists at Princeton University have turned to an unusual branch of geometry instead.

  • Princeton astrophysicists are closing in on the Hubble constant

    Tuesday, Jul 9, 2019
    by Liz Fuller-Wright, Office of Communications

    Exactly how fast is the universe expanding?

    Scientists are still not completely sure, but a Princeton-led team of astrophysicists has used the neutron star merger detected in 2017 to come up with a new value for this figure, known as the Hubble constant. Their work appears in the current issue of the journal Nature Astronomy.
