Quantum Information Processing (Computer Architecture)

Quantum information processing relies on atomic-scale properties of materials and particles to represent and manipulate information. Such processing is becoming increasingly relevant as some dimensions of CMOS transistors have reached those of several atoms, and several start-ups are already offering quantum-optical communication devices on the market.

We are studying architectures, circuits and algorithms for quantum information processing, as well as limitations of these revolutionary technologies. Research in this field combines expertise in computer architecture, design automation, algorithms, physics and theoretical computer science.
