Department of Energy

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) announces its interest in receiving applications to improve our understanding of whether, when, and how quantum computing might advance the frontiers of computational science. Specifically, the purpose of this FOA is to invite applications for foundational research to address the following questions:

  1. What can fundamental physical limits on quantum processors tell us about what quantum computers can and cannot do?
  2. How can we use NISQ devices to move our understanding of when and how quantum computers might be useful as far forward as possible?
  3. How can we assess the utility of a given (existing or hypothetical) quantum processor for advancing the frontiers of computational science?

Applications may address any combination of these themes.

Please see the funding opportunity for agency contacts and more details, including eligibility and application information.
