II.A.1.b.iii.1 Molecular Triplet Qubits

Project: Research project

Project Details


The emerging quantum revolution is quietly transforming science. This nascent approach to
scientific and technological discovery will spark innovation across a diverse range of fields
traversing computation, sensing, and precise measurement. Within the area of energy research,
quantum systems offer the potential to unravel complex questions within energy transfer in
photovoltaics, catalytic mechanisms, and high-energy physics. Over the past decade, the
interdisciplinary scientific community laid the groundwork for the next generation of quantum
technologies through a number of key advances in the understanding of the core quantum unit, the
qubit. These foundational discoveries include creating optically addressable qubits, realizing the
entanglement of multiple qubits, and asserting quantum control over a plethora of qubit candidates.
Creating the next generation of qubits necessitates hybridizing these attributes into a single system.
One intriguing approach to imbuing optically addressable qubits with spatial control is the bottom
up assembly of qubits using molecule-based qubits. Using molecular systems enables the
theoretically motivated design and synthesis of arrays of qubits ready for technological integration.
We seek to predict, create, and understand optically addressable molecular qubits, thereby fusing
the functionality of defect-based qubits with the spatial control of coordination chemistry. This
new class of qubits will have transformative applications in the construction of the next generation
of quantum computers and in quantum sensing applications.
