Quantum Information Processing is an emerging science. Although it is often characterized as dealing with information processing or computation, its remit covers essentially any physical process in the universe. The supervisors currently work on a diverse range of topics, from quantum technology such as methods to improve the storage and readout of ordinary information on CDs or DVDs, to foundational questions in physics, such as better understanding black holes.
