Quantum Architectures and Computation Group (QuArC)

Quantum Architectures and Computation Group (QuArC)

Established: December 19, 2011

The Quantum Architectures and Computation group is a team of leading quantum computer scientists and engineers dedicated to developing real-world quantum algorithms, understanding their implications, and designing a comprehensive software architecture for programming such algorithms on a scalable, fault-tolerant, quantum computer. Our mission is to advance our understanding of quantum computing and its applications and implementation.

The QuArC group collaborates closely with Microsoft Research Station Q in Santa Barbara and several universities worldwide, including TU Delft (Leo Kouwenhoven), Niels Bohr Institute (Charlie Marcus), and the University of Sydney (David Reilly).
