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.

Jason AliceaNew Physics Faculty, Xie Chen, is actively exploring Quantum Information and Condensed Matter Physics. "Putting quantum and materials together isn't easy and it's an amazing subject that's developing quickly as people are trying to figure out what's going on. With IQIM and all the specialized faculty here, Caltech is a leader in this. People on the quantum side and the materials side talk to each other and work on projects together at Caltech. I'm very excited to be a part of that." Read the full Caltech media interview here. 08.12.14

Spiros MichalakisBecause of the incredible response to his first appearance, Spiros Michalakis, IQIM Outreach Manager, was invited back to the Bryan Callen show for more discussion about the world of quantum physics. You can listen to the podcast here. 08.07.14
