The Center for Quantum Coherent Science at the University of California, Berkeley, is an intellectual nexus that explores the richness, complexity and practical application of quantum mechanics, quantum states, and quantum systems. CQCS pulls together scientists from the sub-fields of atomic and optical physics, condensed-matter physics, quantum information science, and high-energy and string theory and houses them all under one roof. But the real strength of Berkeley’s Center for Quantum Coherent Science is its community of students and postdoctoral researchers, young scientists who are developing their unique perspective on scientific work in an interdisciplinary environment.
