About Us


The Center for Quantum Information and Control (CQuIC) is a new research center, established under the auspices of a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Physics at the Information Frontier (PIF) program. The PIs on the NSF grant are Carlton Caves and Ivan Deutsch of the University of New Mexico (UNM) and Poul Jessen of the University of Arizona (UA). CQuIC is based at the UNM and has research nodes at UNM and at the College of Optical Sciences at UA. The Center’s Director is Carlton Caves.


Research at CQuIC is focused on quantum information, quantum control, quantum metrology, and quantum optics. Theoretical research at UNM encompasses topics in all these areas. The experimental program at UA seeks to implement ideas from quantum information and quantum control in laser-cooled neutral-atom systems.
