Quantum Science and Technologies is an expanding interdisciplinary field that employs quantum theory to understand and harness emergent quantum phenomena, from quantum coherence to quantum mechanical resonators, from exotic states in Dirac materials to spin dynamics, from quantum transport to twisted light.

Our team combines expertise in Quantum Information Processing and Computation, Quantum Communications, Quantum Optics, Many-Body Physics, Condensed Matter and Nuclear Physics to study complex quantum systems and exploit some of their properties to deploy new technologies that overcome existing solutions in quality and performance.
