Professional

Isaac Chuang is a Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, jointly appointed in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, and in the Physics. He leads the quanta research group at the Center for Ultracold Atoms, in the MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics. This group seeks to understand and create information technology and intelligence from the fundamental building blocks of physical systems, atoms and molecules.
Our research interests include:
  • The Physics of Information and Computation
  • Information theory and cryptography
  • Ultracold trapped ions and molecules

I am a co-author of a textbook on Quantum Computation and Quantum Information. I also am on the editorial board of the Virtual Journal of Quantum Information. Recent student theses.
