Faculty members: Prof. Wolfgang Tittel, Prof. Christoph Simon

The Institute for Quantum Information Science is a multidisciplinary group of researchers from the areas of Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics. The goals of Calgary’s Institute for Quantum Information Science are to conduct leading research in key theoretical and experimental topics of quantum information science, to provide excellent education and training in quantum information and cognate areas, and to foster linkage between the Institute and other quantum information institutes and with industrial partners. The Institute has the dual objective of applying quantum physics to produce revolutionary advances in information and communication science and technology, and to advance understanding and methods in quantum physics by applying breakthroughs in quantum information research.

Ongoing research in the institute includes theoretical and experimental aspects of quantum algorithms and complexity theory, quantum information theory, experimental realizations of quantum computing devices, quantum cryptography, quantum optics, and quantum networks. The quantum information science program in physics is undertaken within the Quantum Optics group.
