The Center for Quantum Technologies (CQT), an alliance between Purdue University, Indiana University (both Bloomington and Indiana University Purdue University - Indianapolis (IUPUI) campuses), and the University of Notre Dame, will partner with industry and government stakeholders to identify compelling needs and challenges, and then develop novel quantum technologies to address them. The CQT will focus academic creativity and innovation on addressing key industry problems and concerns. Quantum technologies can harness the properties of single atoms or particles of light, and have relevance to computing, sensing, imaging, metrology, communications, and cryptography. Because of their applicability, quantum technologies have the potential to be truly transformative, with uses in areas including intelligence, financial security, computing, medicine, and navigation. We have entered the second quantum revolution, but it is still in its infancy, and the nascent quantum industry requires significant fundamental research to mature novel technologies. In partnership with our industry members, the CQT researchers will use their expertise in quantum science and engineering to develop and transfer foundational knowledge into industry-relevant quantum devices, systems, and algorithms.

Quantum Information Science and Technology (QIST) is the field of research that exploits the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics to achieve functionalities and performances in complexity and efficiency beyond the capabilities of classical information processing. The ability to understand, manipulate and control the key traits of quantum law (state superpositions, interference, entanglement, measurement) to our advantage is at the heart of QIST. A listing of CQT research themes with potential project areas is below:
QIST in each of these areas has at least the potential to provide a “quantum leap” in our ability to do things, and thus a primary driver for our project suggestions to our industrial partners are in those areas where there is a high potential to not only provide such a lift, but to do so in a way that has at least a potential path to realization in near-term practical systems.
