# Research //

The Geneva Quantum Centre (GQC) has four primary research directions that are both well-aligned with key areas of the quantum technology research globally, as well as highlighting the strengths and competencies at the University of Geneva. The GQC provides a framework to bring together research groups in a collaborative environment to advance quantum science, better understand its potential, and develop algorithms, applications and technologies that demonstrate and exploit a quantum advantage.

# Quantum Information & Communication

Quantum Information and Communication brings together concepts from information theory and quantum physics from quantum random number generators and quantum key distribution all the way to multipartite network scenarios and teleportation.

# Quantum Computation & Simulation

Quantum Computation and Simulation addresses the challenge to control and manipulate increasingly complex quantum systems. Efforts range from the fundamental all the way to practical applications with a strong theory component and many experimental collaborations.

# Quantum Sensing & Metrology

The Quantum Sensing and Metrology activities span experiment to theory in a multitude of directions, from sensing biological systems to assessing temperatures of nanoscale devices, and exploit quantum materials, quantum information theory, and manipulation of light-matter interactions at the quantum scale.

# Quantum Materials

Quantum Materials encompass a large group of compounds whose properties expose the quantum character of the underlying physics. Besides its fundamental interest, we work on novel quantum materials for developing quantum sensing and metrology, as well as hardware for quantum computation.
