Quantum Architectures and Computation Group (QuArC)

The Quantum Architectures and Computation group is a team of leading quantum computer scientists and engineers dedicated to developing real-world quantum algorithms, understanding their implications, and designing a comprehensive software architecture for programming such algorithms on a scalable, fault-tolerant, quantum computer. Our mission is to advance our understanding of quantum computing and its applications and implementation.
