Purdue University is launching a new Quantum Science and Engineering Institute to coordinate research into applications of quantum technologies across several of the University’s divisions, including the College of Engineering, whose dean is Hertz Fellow Mung Chiang.

Among the research projects the new Institute’s researchers are pursuing is studies in “unhackable” quantum communication, led by Purdue Professor Vladimir Shalaev. “Using entangled states, light and matter are so sensitive to disturbance, it would be virtually impossible for a hacker to do their work undetected in a quantum system,” said Chiang.
