Supercomputing and Computation


Quantum Information Science

ORNL researchers apply the principles and techniques of quantum physics to real-world problems in communication, computing, and sensing. The sometimes surprising behavior of light and matter at the quantum level enables results that are simply not possible in the classical world. ORNL scientists engage in basic and applied research to identify and exploit these effects in order to realize the promises of Quantum Information Science.
