Welcome to the QAT Team (Quantum computing Architectures, Algorithms, Applications and their Theory)!

We are a young team currently located at the Computer Science department of École Normale Supérieure in Paris. For more detail about our members, head to the People page.

Our research group believes that the development of Quantum Information Processing requires a holistic approach that integrates architectures, algorithms, and applications. We recognize that applications are crucial for end-users, but they cannot be achieved without the necessary enablers, which are algorithms and architectures. Moreover, the practical impact of this technology on current and future hardware depends on a constant interplay between these three topics, especially given the limited hardware resources available.

To this end, our research program is focused on developing advanced theoretical tools that can help us understand the capabilities of quantum computers, improve their design for specific algorithms, and unlock new functionalities using quantum information processing. By taking this integrated approach, we hope to advance the state-of-the-art in Quantum Information Processing and provide valuable insights for future developments.

Research expertises

Along the years we have developed expertise on:

  • Secure delegated quantum computation
  • Simulation, benchmarking and certification of quantum computers
  • Continuous-variable quantum computation
  • Noise estimation, mitigation and error correction
  • Quantum algorithms
