Scientific Partners


The Centre for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS), an Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence, seeks to initiate the Quantum Era in the 21st Century by engineering designer quantum systems. Through focussed and visionary research EQuS will deliver new scientific insights and fundamentally new technical capabilities across a range of disciplines. Impacts of this work will improve the lives of Australians and people all over the world by producing breakthroughs in physics, engineering, chemistry, biology and medicine.



The Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is a scientific research institute at the University of Waterloo in Canada, harnessing the quantum laws of nature to develop powerful new technologies that will transform information technology and drive the 21st century economy.



The Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (IQIM) at Caltech in the US is a Physics Frontiers Center supported by the National Science Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. IQIM researchers study physical systems in which the weirdness of the quantum world becomes manifest on macroscopic scales. Our research programs span quantum information science, quantum condensed matter physics, quantum optics, and the quantum mechanics of mechanical systems.



We are on the verge of a new technological revolution as the strange and unique properties of quantum physics become relevant and exploitable in the context of information science and technology. The Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) is pursuing that goal as a research partnership between University of Maryland and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
