  • Vescent Photonics- The National Photonics Initiative

    The National Photonics Initiative (NPI) along with experts Mike Raymer (University of Oregon) and Chris Monroe (University of Maryland and IonQ, Inc.) have been actively working with lawmakers for more than a year to draft and advance quantum legislation in Congress. Today, that work has come to fruition. The House Committee on Science, Space and Technology has officially introduced the National Quantum Initiative Act, H.R. 6227, in the U.S. House of Representatives. The committee approved the legislation yesterday with bipartisan support. An amendment to promote access to existing quantum computing and communication systems for users was added to the bill during markup, a provision called for by the NPI’s National Quantum Initiative Action Plan and supported by the stakeholder community. Although the amendment does not refer specifically to a Quantum Computing Access Program (QCAP) as described in the Action Plan, the bill language gives responsibility to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to find an agency home for the program.
