This division of quantum physics and quantum information was founded by Prof. Jian-Wei Pan in 2001. We work in the field of quantum optics and quantum information. Main directions include quantum foundation, fiber-based quantum communication, free-space quantum communication, quantum memory and quantum repeater, optical quantum computing, superconducting quantum computing, quantum simulation with ultra-cold atoms, quantum metrology and related theories. We have built many advanced experimental platforms to conduct cutting-edge research. We have also an electronic workshop and many other facilities to support our scientific missions.
