Just as a computer`s hard drive can store information, systems that can only be properly described by quantum mechanics can also store and transmit information. Quantum information is the field that studies how to use quantum systems such as photons, atoms and special solid state devices to store, process and transmit information. These qubits (quantum bits) promise to outperform any classical computer in some tasks and allow for fully secure cryptography. GIQSul focuses its research on two aspects of quantum information, (i) entanglement and other quantum correlations, which are the key ingredient differing quantum and classical systems, and (ii) how to use photons and superconducting devices for quantum information tasks.
