University of Bristol Quantum Computation & Information Group

At the Quantum Computation and Information group at the University of Bristol, we are interested in all theoretical aspects of quantum information science (foundations, nonlocality, entanglement, information theory and computation), and in quantum optical experiments. This young field is currently undergoing rapid transformation. Its interdisciplinarity is reflected in the group being spread out over four university departments (Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Physics).

The following table lists the main keywords describing our work:

  • Quantum algorithms
  • Quantum computational models
  • Quantum Shannon theory
  • Entanglement
  • Quantum nonlocality
  • Fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics
  • Quantum Key Distribution
  • Single photon sources
  • Nonlocality experiments

Graduate studentships

Are you considering doing a PhD with the Quantum Computation and Information group? We are always interested in new graduate students. Please either contact one of the members of the research group or see the information about postgraduate admission (your application will be processed through the Department of Mathematics but will be brought to the attention of all senior group members).
