Quantum computing and simulation

By working on a combination of theoretical quantum information science as well as quantum experiments, our ultimate aim of developing quantum devices that are capable of competing with today’s supercomputers are destined to become a reality.

The key areas of theoretical and experimental subjects covered are:


  • Quantum algorithms
  • Quantum computational models
  • Quantum Shannon theory
  • Entanglement
  • Quantum non-locality
  • Fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics


  • Quantum key distribution
  • Single photon sources
  • Non-locality demonstrations

The interdisciplinary nature of the research team at the University of Bristol reflects the rapid transformation that this relatively new field is going through and, as such, has led to significant advances including:

  • The integrated quantum chip
  • Quantum in the Cloud resource including an open-access quantum processor.
