The group is involved in research on a wide spectrum of topics in quantum information science, including quantum communication, quantum cryptography, and theory of entanglement. The QIC group also actively works in the recently developing field at the interface of quantum many-body physics and quantum information. Other interests include realizable quantum computers in ultra-cold gases, and in quantum optical systems, and foundations of quantum mechanics.
Institute of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics is a strong center of theoretical physics. It is especially known for the achievements of its employees in the field of quantum optics and quantum information theory (profs. Michal Horodecki, Ryszard Horodecki, Marek Zukowski) mathematical physics (profs. Wladyslaw Adam Majewski, Robert Alicki) and others with considerable achievements.
Our group consists of PhD/MSc/BSc students who are working under the leadership of Prof. Vahid Karimipour. At the moment, the research interest of the group is mainly focused on measurement-based quantum computation, quantum channels with memory, quantum control, and quantum many-body systems. We have organized three international workshops and schools in 2007, 2008 and 2010. To find information about these activities, please go through the webpage.
