Fossil Energy Workshop on Quantum Information Science & Technology Summary Report


License Not Specified

This report summarizes findings and discussion from the Fossil Energy Workshop on Quantum Information Science & Technology which took place on November 19-21, 2019. Quantum Information Science (QIS) is expected to profoundly change the practice of science and engineering in the coming decades. It is a rapidly progressing field, fueled by large investments from the private sector and governments. Its importance to the U.S. economy and national security is underscored by the National Quantum Initiative Act passed in December 2018[1]. QIS includes quantum sensing, quantum communications, quantum simulation experiments, and quantum computation. QIS technology exploits quantum phenomena for performing tasks that are impossible to do today, such as finding prime factors of large numbers or elucidating reaction mechanisms in complex chemical systems.

The opportunities for applying QIS to problems encountered in fossil energy technology development are not known today. This workshop brought together, for the first time, experts in these fields to exchange information and explore potential research opportunities for QIS to advance fossil energy. The goal of the workshop was to develop a set of priority research opportunities that can inform future research efforts in QIS and build a community of next-generation researchers at the intersection of QIS and fossil energy.
