Munich Quantum Center has been established


August 01, 2014


The Munich research institutions bundle their research efforts in quantum sciences within the Munich Quantum Center (MQC), committing themselves to highest standards of excellence in research and teaching.

The Munich Quantum Center (MQC) is born at the heart of the vivid atmosphere in qunatum sciences, gathering 21 research groups belonging to four different institutions: the Ludwig Maximilian University, the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, the Technical University of Munich, and the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanites.

MQC covers a wide array of topics ranging from mathematical foundations, quantum information, computational methods, quantum nano-systems, quantum optics, and quantum many-body physics to superconducting devices.

In MQC, mathematicians and theoretical and experimental physicists analyze physical systems exhibiting intriguing quantum mechanical properties and design new methods for leveraging and controlling such systems, thus paving the way for the development of quantum technologies.

MQC Mission:

From past history to nowadays, Munich institutions and researchers have had a mayor role in the development of the theory of quantum physics. Our researchers are thus “standing on the shoulders of giants”, and profiting from a long tradition of scientific thinking.

The Munich Quantum Center aims to be a unique channel to communicate advances and developments achieved in our teams, thus reflecting and stressing the coherence and common points and directions existing behind our research activity.
