The following faculty members participate in research related to quantum information:

Quantum information has emerged as both a fundamental science and a progenitor of new technological platform in communication, computation, imaging/sensing, metrology and lithography. Six departments at the University of Waterloo including this department are in collaboration with the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) offering opportunities for researchers and graduate students in the area of quantum information.  Major research areas include quantum photonics, quantum optical information processing, nanoelectronic-based quantum information processors, superconducting quantum devices, circuit cavity quantum electrodynamics, spintronics, quantum optical communication, quantum key distribution and hacking, quantum information theory and security, quantum algorithm, quantum complexity, quantum communication and fault-tolerant quantum computation.  Visiting researchers and graduate students will learn about and engage in world-leading research in quantum information through a wide range of advanced research projects and advanced courses on the foundations, applications and implementation of quantum information processing.
