Quantum Information Group, About QIG
Toshiba Research Europe Limited (TREL) is part of Toshiba's global R&D activity.
The Cambridge Research Laboratory of TREL conducts research on quantum information
technology, as well as speech recognition and synthesis.
The Quantum Information Group (QIG), led by Dr Andrew Shields, is actively researching
the application of Quantum Physics to Information Technologies. Our interest lies
not only in exploring new concepts, but also in their practical realization.
Recently we have developed the leading system for Quantum Cryptography, a very secure
form of optical communications. In parallel they create the advanced nanotechnology
required in future quantum information systems.
