On April 14, scientists, engineers, students, and science enthusiasts celebrated World Quantum Day. It’s an international event to spark interest and generate enthusiasm about quantum mechanics.

Here at the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, we invited researchers and staff members at our national laboratories to talk about their work and share what excites them about quantum. In addition to the videos below, be sure to check out our blog post on our quantum information science initiative as well as our explainers of quantum computing and quantum networks.
