Quantum Information

Quantum information explores and exploits uniquely quantum laws, such as the uncertainty principle. Perimeter researchers are working on quantum error correction (the techniques needed to safeguard and verify information amid the errors inherent to quantum computation), pursue the foundations of quantum cryptography (which uses quantum laws to safeguard private information), and the application of quantum information techniques and insights to other areas of physics, including quantum foundations and condensed matter. Researchers collaborate with scientists at our nearby experimental partner, the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo, and some hold joint appointments at both institutes.
