The Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (IQIM) at Caltech is a Physics Frontiers Center supported by the National Science Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. IQIM researchers study physical systems in which the weirdness of the quantum world becomes manifest on macroscopic scales. Our research programs span quantum information science, quantum condensed matter physics, quantum optics, and the quantum mechanics of mechanical systems.
IQIM Postodoctoral Fellowships
We are now accepting applications for the IQIM Postdoctoral Fellowship for 2014 appointments. Review of applications begins December 6, 2013.
In the News
IQIM Publications The range of topics explored by IQIM is demonstrated in our recently published articles: Magneto-Josephson effects and Majorana bound states in quantum wires; Exotic topological order in fractal spin liquids; Robustness in projected entangled pair states; Single-photon time-dependent spectra in coupled cavity arrays. See the IQIM Publications for a full listing of recent articles and links to the texts.12.4.13
Spiros Michalakis is part of a team working with Google A.I. to modify the popular game Minecraft to include concepts of quantum physics. They use qcraft to introduce three high-level quantum-mechanical concepts: observational dependency, superposition, and entanglement."Through the game and the [qcraft] blog posts, we hope to bring the public up to speed on some of the most fascinating physics research that is happening right now, including studies of quantum mechanics, black holes, time travel, wormholes, and more," [Read the full CIT news interview, read Spiros' Quantum Frontiers blog post, follow the qcraft blog] 10.31.13
