Gagliardi group selected as QNEXT’s Images of the Week

The Gagliardi group’s work, as part of the Next Generation Quantum Science and Engineering (Q-NEXT) project, have been selected as the “Images of the Week”. Established in 2020, Q-NEXT brings together roughly 100 experts from three national laboratories, 10 universities and 14 technology companies to develop the science and technology for controlling and distributing quantum information, enabling pivotal discoveries and U.S. competitiveness in quantum science and engineering. Bravo!

 

Catalyst Design for Decarbonization Center (CD4DC) Kick-Off Meeting

The Catalyst Design for Decarbonization Center (CD4DC), a U.S. Department of Energy-sponsored Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC), is based at the University of Chicago. PIs, senior scientists, junior researchers, and the Scientific Advisory Board gathered at The Study at University of Chicago for the Kick-Off Meeting on October 10 -11, 2022. Let the science begin!

The Catalyst Design for Decarbonization Center (CD4DC) has been awarded to UChicago and Laura Gagliardi will serve as Director.

Laura is the Director of the Catalyst Design for Decarbonization Center (CD4DC), a Department of Energy-sponsored Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC). The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded researchers at the University of Chicago $12.5 million to advance work aimed at finding innovative solutions for long-lasting hydrogen energy research — potentially offering a zero-emission alternative to fossil fuels. Based at the University of Chicago, the CD4DC will partner with researchers at Argonne National Laboratory, Clemson University, Northwestern University, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Stony Brook University, and the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the University of Minnesota.
