The Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology is a joint initiative of the University of Vienna, the TU Wien, the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Science and Technology Austria. It unites quantum physicists of Vienna’s research institutions in one collaborative center. VCQ is setting new impulses for research and teaching in quantum science on the basis of the 2nd quantum revolution through its unique spectrum of research topics – from fundamental quantum physics to novel quantum technologies.
VCQ combines expertise in an exceptional mix of research areas from fundamental quantum physics to new quantum technologies, i.e. technologies that rely on the application of genuine quantum effects or that enable such applications. The topics addressed within VCQ range from the foundations of quantum mechanics to complex quantum optical and many-body effects and their application for emerging quantum technologies.
