The Quantum Information Theory Group was established in Pavia University by G. M. D’Ariano in the early 90’s. It is now internationally renown and has numerous scientific collaborations with leading research groups worldwide. Currently it explores two main research lines:
Foundations of Quantum Mechanics. An ambitious program to recover the whole of quantum physics from pure informational concepts.
Quantum Information theory and quantum technologies. Use quantum effects to solve practical problems, while at the same time probing the limits of what is physically possible.
