About the Institute

MISSION

The mission of the Institute for Quantum Studies at Chapman University is to provide a worldwide focal point for students, researchers, institutions, state and national governments, as well as industry, to collaborate through the advancement of applications to the foundations of quantum physics.

In addition, the IQS supports new fields evolving from these cooperative advances (e.g. in mathematical, social, biological, computational, and physical sciences).

VISION

The Institute for Quantum Studies strives to communicate both the relevance, and importance, of quantum studies to the broader public through community outreach efforts. Although conceptually complex, the IQS recognizes the broader interests of the public by making science more accessible.

WHY QUANTUM STUDIES?

“Quantum physics is the most successful scientific theory in history; its prospects can potentially transform all science.”

—Jeff Tollaksen, PhD, Director of IQS

In the twentieth century, the theories governing the microscopic world of atoms led to discoveries that now make up more than half of US Gross National Product (such as computers, lasers, etc.).

More recent developments have led to new, revolutionary technological possibilities, including ultra-powerful computers and cryptographic codes that cannot be broken.

If information is processed with quantum states instead of with classical yes-no bits, we can perform tasks that are not possible with any computers evolving from today’s technology.

Not only does quantum studies set the standard for the future, but is also redefining what’s possible today.
