We are part of a worldwide race to control the quantum states of elementary particles, and to integrate them in technology platforms. This so-called second quantum revolution will enable exponential advances in many fields of research and technology.

Integrating quantum systems in technology platforms will transform not only obvious fields such as ICT, but also less obvious ones such as healthcare

At the Center for Quantum Materials and Technology Eindhoven (QT/e), we focus on research topics such as advanced materials, nanotechnology and integrated circuit development for quantum technologies, post-quantum cryptography and information security, and quantum simulation with cold atoms and polaritons. This research has the potential to revolutionize a wide range of fields, including ICT and the internet, simulation and computation, data science and security, energy and sensing technologies, healthcare, logistics, and materials sciences.

Eindhoven Hendrik Casimir Institute

The Eindhoven Hendrik Casimir Institute (EHCI) brings together the world-class photonics and quantum research at TU/e to create a unique and optimal environment to enable these fields to grow synergetically. The institute´s interdisciplinary approach paves the way for collaborations to create new paradigms in computing, communication and sensing. 

The mission of the Eindhoven Hendrik Casimir Institute is to contribute to a sustainable information society, by bringing together TU/e’s unique core strengths in photonics and quantum technology, from materials to systems. Interdisciplinary projects will bring scientists in these fields together.
