Educating a quantum workforce with QuSTEAM while opening doors to a broad and diverse range of students

Michigan is part of a multi-institution effort to create new flexible courses for undergraduate students interested in being part of the second quantum revolution

Markus Borsch awarded Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship to support research in quantum engineering

Borsch’s research in light-driven quantum electronics is expected to guide next-generation quantum devices

Mapping quantum structures with light to unlock their capabilities

Rather than installing new “2D” semiconductors in devices to see what they can do, this new method puts them through their paces with lasers and light detectors.

The new quantum spurs action by the Michigan Quantum Science & Technology Working Group

The new working group showcased Michigan’s strength in Quantum Science at a workshop attended by researchers throughout the University of Michigan.

Prof. Mackillo Kira Elected OSA Fellow for contributions to quantum optics

Kira was recognized for his pioneering contributions to the theory of semiconductor quantum optics.

Light could make semiconductor computers a million times faster or even go quantum

Electron states in a semiconductor, set and changed with pulses of light, could be the 0 and 1 of future “lightwave” electronics or room-temperature quantum computers.

Ultrashort light pulses for fast “lightwave” computers

Extremely short, configurable “femtosecond” pulses of light demonstrated by an international team could lead to future computers that run up to 100,000 times faster than today’s electronics.

ECE welcomes new faculty

These faculty broaden and deepen ECE’s areas of expertise in robotics, ultra low power circuits, nanophotonics, information theory, and many other areas.
