The Elizabeth and Richard Henes Center for Quantum Phenomena (CQP) is about people, not places and buildings. It is where scientific dreams, from the desire to understand the fate of the universe to using quantum physics to improve human health, become reality. The center brings the academic community together to innovate and respond to unusual abilities, qualities, and processes that cannot be explained by means of classical physics.


"Without the philanthropy of the CQP, it is unlikely this trip to visit some of the world's premier laboratories would have been possible, and many students would have missed out on an educational tour of a lifetime."
