Huawei Hong Kong Research Centre (HKRC), established in 2012, embodies Theory Lab and Noah’s Ark. While Noah’s Ark is oriented towards applied research and implementations, Theory Lab hosts a selection of interdisciplinary groups pushing the boundaries of foundational research. The experts in Theory lab have diverse scientific backgrounds, ranging from engineering to computer science, mathematics and physics. Consequently, a wide range of research lines – from most foundational questions to their practical implementations – are all realized within Huawei Labs.
Our leading group is concerned with research in quantum information theory, condensed matter theory and the intersection between the fields.
- We ask what information processing tasks are possible using single quantum systems as carriers of information. We think about the mathematical-theoretical foundations of quantum information, specifically about the theory of entanglement and questions of tomography, but also about ways of realizing topological quantum computing.
