About IQIM

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 many-body physics, quantum optics, and the quantum mechanics of mechanical systems, with faculty drawn from Caltech’s departments of physics, applied physics, and computer science. IQIM also conducts outreach programs to introduce K – 12 students and the general public to the wonders of the quantum world.

Logos and Acknowledgements

In papers, please acknowledge IQIM using our full name: Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (NSF Grant PHY-1125565). The acknowledgement can vary based on whether IQIM offers full or partial support. An example acknowledgement is:

“We acknowledge funding provided by the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter, an NSF Physics Frontiers Center (NSF Grant PHY-1125565) with support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (GBMF-2644).”

If you have additional funding from other sources, it is appropriate to list those along with IQIM. “We acknowledge funding provided by the Institute for Quantum Information and Matter, an NSF Physics Frontiers Center (NSF Grant PHY-1125565) with support of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (GBMF-2644). Additional funding support was provided by PHY-xxxxxxx and NSF-XXXXXX (or other sources such as CERN, etc.)”
