Mike Raymer in Congressional Testimony
An Oct 24 congressional hearing by the House Science Committee on a National Photonics Initiative featured Mike Raymer. In her presentation, committee member Rep. Suzanne Bonamici of Oregon acknowledged Prof Raymer and and questioned the expert panel about the commercial opportunities for the U.S. in the area of quantum technology, which includes quantum computing, quantum communication, and quantum sensing. The panel included Chris Monroe, our Nov 2 colloquium speaker. The hearing followed the submission earlier this year of a white paper on the the National Quantum Initiative authored by Prof Raymer and solicited by the Committee. A description and video recording of the hearing is here, and Bonamici’s acknowledgement of Raymer is at 1:14:23. The Optical Society of America tweeted a photo of Raymer meeting with Bonamici.
