Our goal is to perform research
and development on the commercial exploitation of quantum information
processing (QIP). While our primary longterm goal is the implementaton
of a largescale quantum computer, all technologies related to QIP, including
quantum communication and quantum cryptography, are of interest to us.
Within the next few years,
we plan to construct prototypes of quantum information devices and to
build a portfolio of useful intellectual property. We intend to set up
R&D laboratories (in house and/or through collaborations).
