The University of Texas professor Seth Bank is involved in two new multi-university million dollar multi-disciplinary projects from the National Science Foundation aimed at fostering collaboration in quantum information and computation research. The foundation of both projects is a new class of artificial semiconductor materials developed in Bank’s lab that are engineered at the few atom scale to exhibit electronic and optical properties not found in nature.
