Q-Lab Foyer (rendered)


Q-Lab, the National Quantum Lab at Maryland, is a new user facility of the University of Maryland in partnership with IonQ Inc, a leading developer of quantum computing devices, located in the Discovery District at 4505 Campus Drive, College Park, MD.

Q-Lab provides unique research and teaching opportunities using innovative technologies in the field of quantum computing to serve the scientific user community at UMD and beyond. In concert with other quantum initiatives at UMD, Q-Lab provides a supporting infrastructure for an innovation ecosystem for quantum technologies and offers a supporting environment for thought leadership to come together for the exchange/sharing of ideas in the evolving space of quantum technologies.

Q-Lab's mission is to advance knowledge and expertise in the novel field of quantum computing by

Q-Lab and IonQ are also end-nodes of a local quantum network connecting ion-trap labs throughout the campus and the Discovery District: JQI/Atlantic, IREAP, ARL, MAX, IonQ, Q-Lab. The quantum network enables quantum computers to communicate over large distances on the internet while preserving quantum coherence (entanglement). This quantum network forms the core of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Quantum Internet (MARQI), which will be built out over the next years.

Meetings, Workshops, Bootcamps, Courses

The Q-lab facility encloses a conference room as well as offices and cubicles. Regular meetings on quantum computing related topics will be announced when the remodeling of the suite has been completed.

If you are tied up on the workshop/bootcamp days, you may take a look at our Quantum Computing Tutorial.
