Organization profile

Introduction / mission

We are part of a worldwide race to control the quantum states of elementary particles, and to integrate them in technology platforms. This so-called second quantum revolution will enable exponential advances in many fields of research and technology.

Highlighted phrase

Integrating quantum systems in technology platforms will transform not only obvious fields such as ICT, but also less obvious ones such as healthcare

Organisational profile

At the Center for Quantum Materials and Technology Eindhoven (QT/e), we focus on research topics such as advanced materials, nanotechnology and integrated circuit development for quantum technologies, post-quantum cryptography and information security, and quantum simulation with cold atoms and polaritons. This research has the potential to revolutionize a wide range of fields, including ICT and the internet, simulation and computation, data science and security, energy and sensing technologies, healthcare, logistics, and materials sciences.


Our quantum technology research at TU/e takes place in a multidisciplinary group of around 40 physicists, mathematicians and electrical engineers, embedded in the high-tech Brainport ecosystem where implementation of quantum-enabling technologies is a priority. QT/e aims to form the basis for a strong educational program at TU/e, to train the quantum engineers and quantum information specialists of the future.
