QInfo is an Inria Project-Team focusing on quantum information. We develop mathematical and algorithmic tools to make optimal use of quantum information resources.
Information-processing devices that can take advantages of the laws of quantum theory have an important potential in terms of computation, communication and secrecy. However, the quantum devices available today are all affected by unwanted noise: the actual behavior of the device only matches approximately with the model they were designed for. Such an unwanted deviation from the model can have devastating effects for the information processing applications: for example, in the context of quantum computation, the accumulation of noise can render the outcome of the computation completely useless. This project aims to develop methods and algorithms to optimally reduce the undesirable effect caused by noise on quantum information processing tasks.
