Computational Systems and Technology

Research Centers

The USC Lockheed Martin Quantum Computing Center (QCC) is a groundbreaking effort between Lockheed Martin Corporation and the University of Southern California to explore the power of adiabatic quantum computing, and to close the gap between academic research and real-world critical problems.
Director: Daniel Lidar, Ph.D.

The Secure and Robust Electronics Center (SURE) seeks to investigate and address state-of-the-art manufacturing complexities that significantly compromise key aspects of chip production – and to accelerate the scale, pace and impact of hardware robustness and security technology development.
