The Institute for Quantum Computing is inviting applications for postdoctoral positions in all aspects of quantum information processing, bridging areas from fundamental theory to physical implementations.

We are very sad to inform the quantum community that professor Roman Stanisław Ingarden, famous Polish physicist, passed away on the 12th of July 2011. Before his death he worked as professor emeritus at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. His scientific achievements have been recognised worldwide. In 1976 he published the paper 'Quantum Information Theory' which is, most probably, the first documented case of using the term 'quantum information theory'.


This taught MSc course offers a comprehensive overview of the emerging applications of quantum physics to information processing and quantum coherent devices. The course syllabus includes important topics such as:

- Quantum Information Science. This teaches how quantum phenomena may be used to process information in novel ways that outperform existing information processing technologies.

- Experimental Quantum and Atom Optics. This topic covers the key techniques used to generate and manipulate quantum coherence in real experimental systems.
