Quantum Information Laboratory

Pursuing quantum physics and applying it to information theory

Do you think the moon exists when you aren’t looking at it? The question may seem quite philosophical, but it has emerged as an extremely difficult problem in modern physics. Our laboratory is researching this question from perspectives including quantum mechanics, which are the theories about the microscopic world, and the new field of quantum information science.

For Society

By taking advantage of the wonders of quantum mechanics, we could achieve teleportation, unbreakable codes and ultra-supercomputers that are superior to modern ones. Perhaps we should brace ourselves for a world like the ones depicted in science fiction stories.
