Quantum communications and post-quantum cryptography

The fundamental laws of quantum mechanics make it possible to create communication protocols whose safety would be absolutely guaranteed.








Quantum sensors and metrology

Quantum sensors exploit the control of individual quantum systems whose response to an external parameter makes them sensors whose performance exceeds that of conventional systems in terms of resolution and sensitivity.








Quantum photonics: develop the building blocks for the future Internet and provide the keys to secure communications

Quantum light plays an essential role in multiple quantum technologies for both the future quantum internet and computation.







Quantum electrical circuits: elementary components of the quantum computer

Quantum electrical circuits are at the heart of the quantum computer, which could perform computational tasks much more efficiently than a conventional computer.








Paris-Saclay, birthplace of Spintronics

Spintronics is a vast field of research involving the exploration of new materials and physical phenomena involving a quantum property of electrons, the spin.









Quantum simulation an expanding field to optimize the properties of materials


By assembling such individual quantum systems in a controlled way and making them interact, it is now possible to simulate systems that are too complex to solve using numerical methods.







Quantum and topological materials: understand and master quantum states

The exploration of new electronic or spin states is one of the very early foundations of quantum matter that prepares the applications of tomorrow, often unpredictable.








Quantum algorithms

The development of algorithms and software tools is an essential ingredient in the use of future quantum co-processors.









Nanotechnologies: worldwide expertise at the heart of Université Paris-Saclay

Quantum science and technology is based on the latest developments
