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.

Applications being accepted for 2015 IQIM Postdoctoral Scholars

Information about how to apply for IQIM Postdoctoral Scholar positions beginning in 2015 are available on the this webpage. Review of applications will begin December 5, 2014. Questions? Contact Marcia Brown

david hsiehDavid Hsieh: Quantum States of Matter in Crystals, part of the Ernest C. Watson lecture series. A quantum phase occurs when the electrons in a crystal share a quantum state that creates an interdependence among them. This can lead to tangible phenomena that seem to defy the laws of everyday physics. Read more in the Caltech media preview and plan to attend the Watson Lecture, 8pm, Wednesday, October 15 in the Beckman Auditorium. 10.13.14

animated qubitUndergrad, Adam Jermyn, awarded Goldwater Scholarship. Goldwater Scholarships are designed to foster outstanding students and encourage them to pursue careers in the natural sciences, mathematics, and engineering. Adam is completing his Senior year. In his broad work on emergent phenomena he has collaborated with Jason Alicea on quantum information.
