Quantum mechanics redefines information and its fundamental properties. Researchers at Perimeter Institute work to understand the properties of quantum information and study which information processing tasks are feasible, and which are infeasible or impossible. This includes research in quantum cryptography, which studies the tradeoff between information extraction and disturbance, and its applications. It also includes research in quantum error correction, which involves the study of methods for protecting information against decoherence. Another important side of the field is studying the application of quantum information techniques and insights to other areas of physics, including quantum foundations and condensed matter.
