Delaware State University Awarded $7.5 M to Establish Center of Excellence in Advanced Quantum Sensing

By IQT News posted 09 Nov 2020

(DelawareStateNews) Delaware State University will be establishing a center dedicated to quantum sensing to dive further into quantum science research. The Center of Excellence in Advanced Quantum Sensing is made possible by a five-year, $7.5 million research grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Defense to the university.
“The center has evolved to provide distinctive research opportunities and also quantum science-related education to our undergraduate and graduate students on the campus,” Dr. Gour S. Pati, DSU professor of physics and engineering, said during a press conference Thursday. “This is very unique, especially for DSU.”
Dr. Pati will serve as the principal investigator and director of the center. The co-principal investigator is Dr. Renu Tripathi, professor and co-director of the center. Other investigators include Dr. Deborah Santamore, Dr. Jun Ren and Dr. Matthew Bobrowski.
Quantum sensing technology provides new avenues for improving sensitivity and precision of physical measurements (such as time, electromagnetic field, rotation, acceleration, gravity, etc.) beyond classical limits, according to a news release. It has growing relevance in applications ranging from enabling inertial navigation to understanding the human brain.
