Quantum computing has a new home on campus with this two-story, 21,000-square-foot facility, built in partnership with Amazon Web Services. The exterior brick façade features a pattern inspired by the interference pattern of a quantum wavefunction. Inside, research collaborators from Amazon, Caltech, and other academic institutions enjoy open and reconfigurable interior workspaces looking out across campus and the San Gabriel Mountains.

Led by Oskar Painter (MS '95, PhD '01), the John G Braun Professor of Applied Physics and Physics, and Fernando Brandão, Bren Professor of Theoretical Physics, the center aims to develop more powerful quantum computing hardware and software and to identify new applications for quantum technologies in areas such as data security, machine learning, medicine development, and sustainability.
