Q@TN is a joint initiative of University of Trento, Bruno Kessler Foundation, and National Research Council aimed at coordinating their on-going activities and to start new ones in the field of Quantum Science and Technologies.
Q@TN promotes research projects, technological transfer, education and training.
Research activities are planned in the areas of fundamental quantum science, quantum communications, quantum computing, quantum simulations, future sensors and metrology.
The Physics of Information and Quantum Technologies Group promotes research and advanced training aiming at understanding and exploiting the role of quantum physics, of thermodynamics, and of relativity in the encoding, detection, transmission and processing of information, as well as at exploring the insights quantum information brings into fundamental physics.
We explore light as a tool in classical physics, such as when it can be used to push or pull individual particles (think of where a comet's tail comes from!), or for exploring the dynamics of colloidal particles (such as cells, bacteria, or test spheres), or even light's ability to be used in sensing of very small numbers of particles.
Inac, a joint CEA-UGA research institute, is a major actor in fundamental research on condensed matter, soft matter and cryogenics in Grenoble.
Most of its activities in physics, chemistry and at the interface with biology are included under the banner of nanoscience. It has programmes in several strategic areas: low carbon energy, information technology, heath technology, global defence and security, development and use of large facilities, cryogenics for space and for large facilities.
