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.

paul dieterleIn the Nature Physics article, A polynomial time algorithm for the ground state of one-dimensional gapped local Hamiltonians Thomas Vidick and colleagues provide the first algorithmic method that is both efficient and provably correct for finding compact representations of a large class of many-body systems.The article is also featured in a News and Views article Quantum Hamiltonian Complexity: Worth the wait. 6.1.15

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
