NEQST RFI released. Responses due Jan 19

The U.S. Army Contracting Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Research Triangle Park Division. is issuing this Request for Information (RFI) in support of the U.S. Army Research Office (ARO) and the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS), in seeking information on emerging ideas, concepts, and approaches for qubit-related science and technology, specifically those related to quantum information processing. Of specific interest are qubit systems that explore new operating regimes and environments, fundamentally new methods of fabrication, and new methods of design, control, or operation. These explorations should have in mind the development of quantum hardware where the novel properties of these systems create significant advantages in coherence, fabrication, and/or qubit operation over current state-of-the-art qubits.
