|01/01/2014 - Creation of the Federation Paris Centre for Quantum Computing PCQC|
The Paris Centre for Quantum Computing (PCQC) brings together computer scientists, theoretical & experimental physicists and mathematicians that work in Paris. PCQC aspires to break the ground for the establishment of new and realistic applications in quantum information processing by uniquely combining concepts from quantum computation, communication and cryptography and eventually lead the way from a Personal Computer (PC) to a Quantum Computer (QC).
