Yale University today announced the establishment of the Yale Institute for Nanoscience and Quantum Engineering, which will unite and expand Yale’s existing efforts in this rapidly developing science and technological frontier.
An initial investment of $5.5 million will bolster the Institute’s infrastructure and initiate seed projects adding to the more than $100 million of funding already focused on these areas of investigation at Yale. The initiative is a part of Yale’s commitment of over $1 billion to research infrastructure and science and engineering programs in the coming decade.
The Institute will unite and strengthen six existing areas of excellence at Yale including molecular electronics, quantum information processing, chemistry of soft materials, nanoparticles, photonics, and nanoscale biomedical engineering. Unification of key facilities and the addition of new core facilities will maximize the collaboration between areas and accelerate interdisciplinary research and education.
