Welcome to the UMBC Quantum Information Group website. The QIG is led by Jim Franson and Todd Pittman of the UMBC Physics Department. We are primarily interested in optical approaches to quantum information processing. Our current research efforts focus on Linear Optics Quantum Computing and Quantum Zeno Gates.
