What we do
Our mission at the Centre for Quantum Software and Information (QSI) is to research and develop software for quantum computers and to discover new information processing applications and hardware infrastructure for future quantum technologies.
Our research and facilities
The UTS Centre for Quantum Software and Information (QSI) is a world-leading research institute for quantum computing and home to a new state-of-the-art Millikelvin Quantum Science lab facility for superconducting qubit experiments. We work with researchers in Australia and around the world on both the foundational understanding of quantum information science and on developing the software, information processing and hardware infrastructure required for future quantum technologies.
Our theoretical research spans the development of “full stack” quantum computing and communication, while our hardware team focusses on developing tools and techniques critical for superconducting circuit-based quantum information science, one of the most promising hardware platforms for quantum computing. Research strengths include:
- Quantum control and characterization
- Quantum architectures and fault tolerance
- Quantum algorithms, complexity, and applications
- Quantum programming languages and software development
- Quantum machine learning and AI applications
- Quantum cryptography and security
- Quantum simulations
- Quantum hardware and devices
Experimental quantum information science and superconducting qubits
UTS QSI's long-established expertise in software and information processing capabilities of quantum computing and communication technologies places it in a unique position in Australia. QSI’s unique research strengths in software and theory complement not only our hardware and experimental activities, but also the research taking place in other world-leading quantum technology communities.
QSI is working closely with the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technologies (CQC2T) through the Quantum algorithms and complexity program.
QSI is located primarily in the School of Computer Science at the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, an innovative and research-intensive faculty with a strong reputation for its practice-based learning programs and industry engagement. QSI is also home to interdisciplinary research programs in physics maths and chemistry, based in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the Faculty of Science, a high-impact research faculty with world-class facilities.
