Jefferson Lab's Christopher Thomas Calculating a particle spectrum in lattice QCD

In a quiet office at DOE’s Jefferson Lab, you can find Christopher Thomas at his desk poring over computer code. A physicist, Thomas is working to combine theory work with existing computer code to render parts of the theory of quantum chromodynamics into a computer-solvable form, called lattice QCD.

Ames Lab theoretical physicist Viatcheslav Dobrovitski was recently part of a team that produced and controlled rotations of a single quantum spin at rates less than one trillionth of a second.Spin Doctors: Opening the door to studying new, very fast quantum processes

For many exciting applications—from someday building quantum computers to developing ultra-precise magnetometry and improving quantum communication across fiber-optic networks—scientists need to better understand really fast and really small quantum systems.
