Quantum Computing Professor, Researcher Yacoby Elected to American Academy of Arts & Sciences – HPCwire

We are honoring the excellence of these individuals, celebrating what they have achieved so far, and imagining what they will continue to accomplish, said David Oxtoby, President of the American Academy. The past year has been replete with evidence of how things can get worse; this is an opportunity to illuminate the importance of art, ideas, knowledge, and leadership that can make a better world.

Yacoby holds appointments in the Physics Department and at theHarvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences(SEAS)and is a member of the National Academy of Science.

Yacobys research explores topological quantum computing, interacting electrons in layered materials, spin-based quantum computing and the development of novel quantum sensing probes such as scanning single electron transistors and color centers in diamond for unraveling the underlying microscopic physics of correlated electron systems.

Yacoby is leading a research area at theDepartment of Energys Quantum Information Science (QIS) Research Centerat Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where his work will focus on using quantum sensing techniques to explore quantum materials.

Yacoby is a member and sits on the executive committee of theHarvard QuantumInitiativeand a participant in theCenter for Integrated Quantum Materials(CIQM), a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center, based at SEAS. CIQM is dedicated to studying new quantum materials with non-conventional properties that could transform signal processing and computation.
