World Quantum Day 2022
April 15, 2022
On April 14, scientists, engineers, students, and science enthusiasts celebrated World Quantum Day, an international event to spark interest and generate enthusiasm about quantum mechanics. Here at Berkeley Lab, we’re forging solutions to harness the power of quantum information science and technologies for discoveries that will improve our lives, from new materials to secure communications. And as part of this global event, we created a social media campaign to illustrate our pioneering work across the quantum research ecosystem—from theory to application.
We highlighted our work with industry and academia to fabricate and test quantum-based devices, develop software and algorithms, build a prototype computer and network, and apply these innovations for breakthroughs in physics and chemistry, as well as our efforts to provide hands-on training for the future quantum workforce.
