Quantum Information Science

Students interested in Quantum Information Science (QIS) will find excellent opportunities at Syracuse University. The heart of the field is quantum computing that uses multilevel quantum systems (qubits) instead of classical semiconductor bits. The impact could be revolutionary on subjects ranging from fundamental science (quantum gravity, black holes, neutron stars, molecular structure and dynamics) to current technologies (cryptography, data mining, supply chains, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence). There are presently four professors working in the field, and there’s an educational partnership with QIS researchers working at the nearby Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome, New York. Their research includes both laboratory realizations of qubits and quantum computers as well as algorithms to exploit them for currently intractable calculations in many areas.
