Quantiki is an international project run by a team of volunteers. We are not attached to a particular university or country and are fully non-commercial, free and open. The intention of Quantiki is to provide a portal and encyclopedia for quantum information that can be edited by the community.


Quantiki is hosted by the Research Center for Quantum Information, Institute of Physics, Slovak Academy of Sciences

Quantiki is also supported by QUTE-EUROPE Coordination Action

Quantiki is supported by Q-ESSENCE project, a part of a FET proactive initiative.

Recent contest for the new wiki articles is sponsored by ID Quantique

Quantiki is also supported by the following institutions:

  • Centre for Quantum Computation of University of Cambridge,
  • Department of Materials of University of Oxford,
  • Institute for Mathematical Sciences of Imperial College London,
  • Institute for Mathematical Physics Technical University of Braunschweig,
  • Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Previous Supporters

The server we used previously was sponsored by the Centre for Quantum Technologies of the National University of Singapore.

We were also supported by the ERA-PILOT project in order to employ students working in the field to provide some initial content and improve the technical backbone.

Quantiki provides content under the terms of GNU Free Documentation License unless it is states otherwise. If you are wondering if you can publish here your material previously published by APS, read PRL Editorial from October 2008. Participation

Participation on all levels is encouraged from both specialists and amateurs, and anyone can edit entries. We hope to create a resource that can serve the interested public, students, and experts. While Quantiki aims to be more specialised than corresponding entries in the Wikipedia, we hope that the two projects will reinforce each other.


The name is (clearly) derived from a combination of “quantum” and “wiki”, playing on Kon-Tiki, the name of a raft and a book about the expedition made with the raft. Hopefully we’ll have an exciting voyage with this, but one that doesn’t end up crashing!
