Quantum science and engineering

Quantum science and engineering research area


Quantum mechanical entanglement is the main resource for implementation of all quantum technologies (quantum computers,simulators, sensors, and networks). Our goal is to study and scale entanglement in a variety of physical systems (light, semiconductors, atoms), and to develop practical quantum systems and technologies.
