The Distinguished Quantum Lectures

This image was featured as the cover for Los Alamos Science Magazine, Number 27 (2002).

In recognition of the important contributions of Los Alamos Scientists to many aspects of quantum information science, the CNLS established in 2009 the Distinguished Quantum Lecture.
