CTL Collaborates with Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science on Quantum Computing

On January 29, 2024, representatives of NIST and the Republic of Korea's government metrology agency – the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS)– signed an amendment to an existing memorandum of understanding to include cooperation on research and development (R&D) related to Precision Metrology for Quantum Computing. The signing occurred at NIST's Boulder, Colorado campus.

The non-binding project annex memorandum provides a mutual understanding of the proposed collaboration. Specifically, the memorandum says that the Communication Technology Laboratory at NIST and the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science intend to participate in:

  • Development of advanced precision RF measurement technologies for next-generation superconducting quantum computing. 
  • Qubit readout and control for scalable low-latency qubit feedback using superconducting circuits.
  • Exchange and collaboration on research publications. 
  • Staff exchanges to conduct joint research at Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science and NIST facilities.

NIST’s and KRISS's collaboration will contribute to the global international metrology community in quantum technologies, especially quantum computing and related topics.
