Welcome to QIC @ HRI
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.
14-16 March 2020. Young Quantum 2020 meeting on quantum information and computation for PhD students and postdocs to be held at HRI.
Prof. A.K. Pati has been awarded the J. C. Bose Fellowship of the Department of Science and Technology this year (2019).
The Council of Scientific and Industrial Research awarded Dr. Aditi Sen(De), the Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize, one of the highest Indian science awards in, 2018. She is the first woman recipient of the Bhatnagar Prize in Physical Science category.
DST Meeting on Quantum Information Science and Technology (QuST) held at HRI on 09 - 10 October, 2017. Schedule can be found here.
