The Quantum Information and Computation (QIC) Group at the Harish-Chandra Research Institute (HRI), Allahabad is involved in research on a wide spectrum of topics in quantum information and computation. This includes quantum algorithms, quantum communication, quantum cryptography, and theory of entanglement. The QIC group also actively works in the recently developing field at the interface of quantum many-body physics and quantum information. Other interests include realizable quantum computers in ultra-cold gases and in quantum optical systems. We also work on foundations of quantum mechanics, geometric phases, quantum information processing in the presence of closed time like curves and related issues.
