OneQuantum USA West Coast - August 6th Newsletter
Welcome to the U.S. West Coast Chapter of OneQuantum
The OneQuantum chapter of the U.S. West Coast was founded August 2nd, 2022. Quite a remarkable date if written like this: 8/2/22 or 8/2/2022
To make the date even more mystical, the 8 is representing infinity and the infinite possibilities of the coming quantum technology era. The following 2s are placeholders of the current digital age. The combination of both is indicating the development from digital to quantum age!
The chapter is now working on the development of the “Quantum Tech” community for humanity in the chapter region in close collaboration with other global OneQuantum chapters.
Following major metro areas are in the chapter region:
Vancouver, CA (even Canada, it is closely tied to the U.S. Pacific Northwest and Seattle area)
San Francisco Bay Area/Silicon Valley, CA
Los Angeles, CA
San Diego, CA
Las Vegas, NV (more inland)
Phoenix, AZ (more inland)
To develop the community, the chapter is focusing on the goal to create relationships with organizations and persons involved with quantum technologies in the region. The definition of an organization is covering businesses, universities, non-profits or governmental agencies.
If any of the readers have connections to people in the U.S. West Coast region who are involved in the field of quantum technologies and may be interested, please reach out, it will support the development of the chapter.

News of the U.S. West Coast region
7/26 - A University of British Colombia researcher co-authored a paper about a “new phase of matter” which will open a “portal to extra time dimensions”.
8/2-5 - The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) developed a new approach to create qubits. The new qubit is built with small molecules of calcium and oxygen atoms.
8/3 - Oregon is hoping for a chunk of the $280 billion Congress funding package which designated $200 billion for research in computer-related technologies and includes quantum technologies. This may not be unlikely, especially as of the strong Intel presence in Hillsboro, OR (Portland, OR).
8/5 - Google’s previous claim (2019) that their quantum computer Sycamore outperformed traditional supercomputers by about 10,000 years for a specific simulation is in question again now.
8/6 - wolfSSL (Edmonds, WA) attending Black Hat 2022 in Las Vegas, NV from August 10 to 11 to present post-quantum cryptography algorithms.
