Division of Quantum Information

The mission of the Division of Quantum Information is to promote the advancement and diffusion of knowledge concerning the physics of quantum information, computing, fundamental concepts, and foundations. The Division will serve as a focus for theoretical and experimental research in these and related areas. Research topics of direct interest include quantum entanglement, quantum communication, quantum cryptography, quantum algorithms and simulations, physical implementations of qubits, quantum error correction, fault-tolerant quantum computation, quantum measurements, open quantum systems, quantum coherence, control of quantum dynamics, the quantum-classical correspondence, and the conceptual and mathematical foundations of quantum theory.
