Welcome

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.

Spiros Michalakis Spiros Michalakis worked with the Marvel team on the science behind Ant Man “Even though the original writing by Stan Lee and his co-author meant to take this … less scientifically seriously. The true science does involve some quantum physics,” Michalakis told the BBC in an interview on July.

innoworks2015Caltech's InnoWorks team hosted 57 middle school students from across Southern California for a week of hands-on science and engineering projects June 15-19. IQIM's Spiros Michalakis is the club's sponsor and they also received logistical support from IQIM staff, the Center for Teaching, Learning and Outreach, and Caltech Athletic staff. Caltech undergraduate students plan and lead the full week of activities. Read more about Innoworks in the Caltech media story here 7.1.15

commencementTwo IQIM undergraduate researchers recognized at Caltech's 121st Annual Commencement. Jong Yeon Lee received the Richard P. Feynman Prize, awarded to agraduating senior on the basis of excellence in theoretical physics. Adam Jermyn received the D. S. Kothari Prize in Physics and the George W. Housner Award for outstanding original research. He also received the Frederic W. Hinrichs Memorial Award, recognizing a Caltech senior. Read more here about Jong Yeon and Adam's projects. 6.12.15
