  • Dartmouth PhD students Linta Joseph and Ethan Williams both from the Ramanthan Lab were awarded NSF-sponsored QISE-NET awards this year. QISE-NET award recognizes a triplet of graduate student, his/her adviser and a mentor from industry. Linta will be working with IBM Q while Ethan will be working with the National High Field Magnet Lab. Congratulations to Linta, Ethan and Prof. Ramanthan.

  • Outreach effort by Dartmouth's quantum information science researchers has resulted in a new online teaching tool.  The beginner-level quantum education tool is aimed at making quantum ore accessible to novices.  The pilot program at at Hanover High School lasted two weeks and provided valuable feedback to Professor James Whitfield and his group's efforts to improve quantum education.
