In what may be the most surprising news of this month, researchers from the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering have discovered a way to tune quantum signals so that they can coexist with today's electronics. This is a major breakthrough as these signals were previously considered much too delicate to work with our everyday electronics.

“The ability to create and control high-performance quantum bits in commercial electronics was a surprise,” said in a statement lead investigator David Awschalom, the Liew Family Professor in Molecular Engineering at UChicago and a pioneer in quantum technology. “These discoveries have changed the way we think about developing quantum technologies—perhaps we can find a way to use today’s electronics to build quantum devices.”
