Quantum Information Security Unit

Artur Ekert writing on glass

The discovery that quantum physics allows fundamentally new modes of information processing has required the existing theories of computation, information and cryptography to be superseded by their quantum generalisations. The research unit will conduct theoretical research into all aspects of quantum information processing, and into the implications of the quantum theory of computation for physics itself.
