The group is composed of four main researchers, and we develop theoretical and experimental research in
Characterization of Entanglement and the geommetry of quantum states
Entanglement Quantification and measurement
Decoherence and Disentanglement
Entanglement in systems of identical particles
Cavity QED in atoms and solid state systems
Quantum properties of light
Coupled cavities and simulation of quantum many body systems
Entanglement and theory of resources
L’équipe de recherche en physique de l’information quantique, EPIQ (Physics of Quantum Information Research Team), is a research centre of the Université de Sherbrooke. Its research aims at exploiting quantum mechanical effects for information processing purposes. The team comprises both experimental and theoretical research components. The EPIQ currently counts four Faculty members, as well as Doctorate, Masters and Bachelor students and postdoctoral researchers, all members of the Physics Department of the Faculty of Sciences.
The main objective of the Centre is to bring together various scientists within IISc working on the subject of Quantum Information and Quantum Computation. Such a nucleation is expected to lead to exchange of information, collaboration and cross-fertilization of ideas, leading to consolidation of effort in this interdisciplinary and rapidly developing field.
