Quantum Information Processing and Quantum Communication brought a radical, paradigmatic change in our understanding of the nature of information and of its use. Progress in efficient quantum computation and communication will be possible provided we gain a significantly improved comprehension of the underlying principles of quantum physics, have scalable analysis tools available to study the dynamics, decoherence, as well as the applicability of large quantum states, and, last but not least, have reliable and robust quantum technology components available.
The main objectives of QUASAR are thus to
QUASAR unites a broad variety of partners, ranging from theoretical and mathematical physics all the way to experimental quantum and nonlinear optics and includes an industrial partner focusing on possible deployment of integrated quantum logic circuits.
