Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) logo

Discover how mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, and more combine into one of the most exciting topics in modern science – quantum information – at the Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS). QCSYS is a unique enrichment program for high school students that will run this August.

QCSYS will be a free, online program that offers a blend of expert lectures, small group discussions, problem solving, and opportunities for mentoring and networking with world-leading quantum researchers.

Joint IQC/Physics Seminar featuring Wenchao Xu, MIT

Quantum information science promises great potential to revolutionize our current technologies such as quantum computation, which can solve classically inaccessible problems. To build a practical quantum computer, it is essential to have precise control over individual quanta. By interfacing free-space photons and atomic platforms, we can maximize the performance of quantum computation, as each platform has its own advantages.
