A diverse group of representatives from industry, academia, and scientific societies participated in this year’s quantum-focused Washington Hill meetings in early March. Over 58 virtual meetings were conducted over a period of four days. Stakeholders from IBM, Honeywell, Google, Microsoft, L3, University of Maryland, University of Oregon, Duke, University of Colorado, Harvard, SUNY Poly, University of Rochester, Toptica, IONQ, NYCREATES, SPIE, and The Optical Society (OSA) joined. In addition to advocating for investments in quantum, participants also discussed the Endless Frontier Act and encouraged members to join the bipartisan, bicameral Congressional Optics & Photonics Caucus that was launched in late February.
