Physics professor wins $650,000 grant for quantum computing research

St. Olaf College Associate Professor of Physics Prabal Adhikari has been awarded a Funding for Accelerated, Inclusive Research (FAIR) grant by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) to establish a quantum computing research program aimed at solving open problems in theoretical nuclear physics while simultaneously diversifying the physics student pipeline.

The grant award, worth $649,978, will be funded for a total of three years and will support FAIR’s aim of building research capacity, infrastructure, and expertise at institutions historically underrepresented in the Office of Science portfolio, including minority-serving institutions and emerging research institutions.
