On November 21, Stony Brook University launched the public phase of a seven-year, $600 million comprehensive campaign. The capital campaign, led by the Stony Brook Foundation, is the largest in the history of the State University of New York. More than 30,000 individuals have already donated a total of $426 million and the Foundation expects to raise the remaining $174 million by July 2018.The campaign will fund priorities across campus that are crucial to enhancing further the University’s already extraordinary record of achievement, with an emphasis on increasing financial aid support to students, creating a total of 100 endowed faculty positions, and bolstering our research productivity.
A Stony Brook University research team has developed new tools to test the fundamental constituents of a quantum information processor, a device that manipulates data based on quantum mechanics rather than classical physics and therefore would have computing power well beyond the capabilities of a classic computer. Their findings are published in the journal Scientific Reports.
