About Us

Founded through the National Science Foundation’s Q-AMASE-i initiative under award DMR-1906325, the Quantum Foundry at UC Santa Barbara is a next generation materials foundry that develops materials and interfaces hosting the coherent quantum states needed to power the coming age of quantum-based electronics. The mission of the Foundry is to develop materials hosting unprecedented quantum coherence, train the next generation quantum workforce, and to partner with industry to accelerate the development of quantum technologies.

Research Thrusts

Materials with highly entangled many-body states and protected coherence.
Create and control protected quantum states via the creation of hybrid (ie. interfaced) materials.
Engineer material platforms that host localized quantum states with robust coherence.


Fellows & Associates

The UC Santa Barbara NSF Quantum Foundry is supported by the National Science Foundation through Enabling Quantum Leap: Convergent Accelerated Discovery Foundries for Quantum Materials Science, Engineering and Information (Q-AMASE-i) award number DMR-1906325.
