Description: 

In 2000, then Governor Gray Davis established four Institutes for Science and Innovation as research entities focused on priority areas of science and technology in California. Among the four is the California Nanosystems Institute (CNSI), representing a joint venture between the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of California, Santa Barbara. According to the Marketing and Communications Department of the CNSI, the goal of each research center is to encourage university collaboration with industry and to enable the rapid commercialization of discoveries. CNSI is comprised of faculty from UCLA, UCSB, and a multidisciplinary team of investigators in the life and physical sciences, engineering and medicine. In 2000, California state government pledged $100 million toward the CNSI to be split between UCLA and UCSB.

The Center for Spintronics and Quantum Computation is part of the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) based at the University of California, Santa Barbara. This multidisciplinary research center provides a focus for rapidly expanding research, education and training in spin-based electronics and quantum computation, with an emphasis on the potential realization in coherent electronic, magnetic and photonic nanostructures.
