Centre for Quantum Engineering, Research and Education
The CQuERE vertical of TCG CREST is a dedicated centre to carry out cutting-edge research in the emerging field of quantum computation and information, and also train future researchers for academia as well as industry, keeping in mind the pressing need to foster strong international collaborations between the two domains.
Our vision is to establish CQuERE as a world class research centre on quantum science and technology by creating a stimulating research environment within the centre and bringing together the best of academia and industry.
Quantum computation or simulation of atomic and molecular systems will enable us to carry out extremely time-consuming calculations in a significantly lower amount of time, thereby promising future applications in topics such as drug design.
Quantum computing is based on three main properties of quantum mechanics: superposition, coherence and entanglement. The basic unit of information in a quantum computer is a quantum bit or qubit, which adopts two possible states. Many different technologies are currently being explored for the basic physical implementation of qubits. While qubits with single...
Our work opens up new frontiers in scientific research and the scientific publications are windows to our work.View All
We currently have plans to have Post Doctoral Fellows, Research Scientists and Engineers, and internship students in our vertical, to carry out research on topics of current interest in quantum simulation/ computing as well as on the experimental front with trapped ions, including quantum sensing. We also have plans for a PhD program in the near future.
