Chicago Quantum Exchange researchers are exploring quantum information to develop new applications with the potential to dramatically improve technology for communication, computing, and sensing. They pursue the invention of new technologies in which all components of information processing—sensing, computation, storage, and communication—are kept in the quantum world.
Condensed Matter Physics
Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics
High-Energy and Particle Physics
In high-energy and particle physics, researchers study nature at its most fundamental level, investigating particles that make up both ordinary and exotic forms of matter as well as cosmological phenomena such as dark matter. Researchers wield the principles of quantum physics and the tools of HEP to build quantum computers and other technologies. And they use the power of quantum computing to solve the intractable problems of particle physics.
