Quantum Science and Technologies

Researchers in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University at Buffalo are actively engaged in research that is laying the groundwork for future technologies, whose performance is accelerated by exploiting the strangeness of the quantum realm. 

This is the world of systems whose size is reduced towards the atomic scale, allowing new phenomena to emerge that are not anticipated by the conventional laws of physics. Wave-particle duality, quantum tunneling, and entanglement are just some of the exotic phenomena that emerge in this realm. With these discoveries, we have the potential to realize vastly superior technologies that accelerate over their conventional counterparts using quantum mechanics.
