The Munich area is an extremely active cluster of institutions and research centers committed to the highest standards of excellence in research and teaching.

The members and PIs of the MQC research groups meet up regularly at common workshops and seminars to create a very interactive ambience for quantum science in Munich. The Munich Quantum Center is born at the heart of this vivid atmosphere, gathering 40 research groups belonging to three different institutions: the Ludwig Maximilian University, the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics and the Technical University of Munich

Our research covers a wide array of topics ranging from mathematical foundations, quantum information, computational methods, quantum nano-systems, quantum optics, and quantum many-body physics to superconducting devices. 

In MQC, mathematicians and theoretical and experimental physicists analyze physical systems exhibiting intriguing quantum mechanical properties and design new methods for leveraging and controlling such systems, thus paving the way for the development of quantum technologies.
