Laboratory of Quantum Information Processing and Cryptography was founded in Autumn of 2004. Research in Laboratory is aimed especially on information aspects of quantum information processing, in particular quantum cryptography, information theory, quantum communication and algorithms. Theoretical aspects of classical cryptography, especially problems solvable with security that can be proved with help of information theory, are studied as well.
The quantum part of CNQO consists of Prof Stephen Barnett (FRS), Dr John Jeffers, Dr Daniel Oi and Dr Shashank Virmani. We are part of QUISCO, the quantum information network in Scotland. Recently joining Strathclyde Physics is Stefan Kuhr as the new Professor of Experimental Quantum Information.
