Quantum Information, Concepts and Coherence (QUICC)

A Topical Group within the Australian Institute of Physics


What is a topical group?

It is an organization within the Australian Institute of Physics for members interested in a specific topic related to physics. It is formally created by an act of the AIP Council.

What does “quantum information, concepts, and coherence” cover?

It includes theory, experiment, or technology in areas such as:

    • Quantum information (including computing and communication) 
    • Quantum foundations 
    • Quantum control
    • Quantum-limited measurement 
    • Quantum chaos 
    • Quantum coherence and correlations, in any kind of matter.

Who can join, and does it cost anything?

Anyone in AIP can join with no extra charge.

What will QUICC do?

For Australian physicists interested in QUICC, it will build our sense of community, promote our interests and help co-ordinate our activities. For example:

    • It will look after the representation of our field in the biannual AIP Congress 
    • It may organize its own meetings, and joint meetings or sessions with other topical groups or cognate societies of the AIP 
    • It will maintain a web page and email lists to enable sharing of information about relevant activities in Australia.

Why should I join?

If you are interested in QUICC, then you will be helping to promote your own interests. It is also a way to remain informed, and to inform others about relevant things in Australia or by Australians. For example: overseas visitors, positions vacant, employment wanted, research papers, conferences, etc.

How do I join?

Simply tick the appropriate box on your membership application or renewal form, available on the AIP website, or contact our secretary (see below) with your AIP membership details.

Who are the representatives?

The following QUICC executive was elected at the 2014 AGM held at the AIP Congress in Canberra.
