Quantum Science and Technology at Skoltech 

Skoltech proudly hosts several leading researchers, labs and activities that cover the full spectrum of contemporary quantum research.  This includes both experimental and theoretical groups working directly on quantum enhanced technologies as well as even business and patent analysis projects related to technology trends.  In addition to this wide effort, there are many researchers working on supporting and related technologies, such as condensed matter, quantum materials and the numerical simulation of physical systems.

As anticipated, this wide portfolio of quantum research is accompanied by an equally wide teaching portfolio.  Students are able to take a range of classes and study topics to suit their research agenda and their educational goals.  As Skoltech is a graduate only research university, the courses are often aimed at enabling students to contribute cutting edge research.

Students who are interested in studying quantum related subjects in pursuit of an MSc or PhD degree should contact their perspective advisors and apply directly to the program.  To assist potential applicants, below we have complied what we believe is a complete list (as of March 2019) of Skoltech faculty working on quantum related research.
