Quantum Information Science and Technology - Prof. NEMOTO, Kae
The last decade has seen that our understanding of the principles of quantum mechanics lead to the development of technologies underpinned by it. These quantum principles of superposition and entanglement can be used to process, store, and transport information in radically new and powerful ways. We can now coherently observe, explore and manipulate the quantum properties of many different physical systems. We have extended both our theoretical and experimental capabilities to understand and fabricate quantum systems well beyond the few qubits level. This is where novel features and new science & technologies possibilities are emerging. Our research focuses around quantum computation, quantum communication, quantum metrology and sensing, high precision measurements, programming quantum computers and quantum complex systems. While our approach is theoretical, we have a strong emphasis through collaboration on the realization of these new and emerging quantum information based technologies. There are thus natural opportunities to engage with experimental research collaboratively with our partners.
