The research group "Quantum Technologies for Information Science (QUTIS)", based at University of the Basque Country in Bilbao, develops interdisciplinary research in Quantum Optics, Quantum Information, Superconducting Qubits, Circuit Quantum Electrodynamics, Condensed Matter, and Quantum Biomimetics. QUTIS is interested in theoretical quantum science with a deep comprehension of the involved quantum technologies. In this sense, we are constantly collaborating with experimental groups to confirm our predictions and models, and with an eye open for possible technological and patent applications.
QUTIS is led by Prof. Enrique Solano and is formed by (from left to right):
Antonio Mezzacapo, Íñigo Arrazola, Hodei Eneriz, Urtzi las Heras, Unai Alvarez-Rodriguez, Roberto Di Candia,
Julen S. Pedernales, Enrique Solano, Jorge Casanova, Guillermo Romero, Iñigo Egusquiza,
Simone Felicetti, Mikel Sanz, Lucas Lamata and Laura García-Álvarez.
QUTIS has as a goal the development of top-level and influential interdisciplinary research with an international team of talented
and motivated researchers. We aim at providing the best facilities, integration to national and international scientific networks,
while keeping a friendly and competitive academic and research environment. Our PhD students and Postdoctoral Fellows
are constantly driven by a research team spirit that stimulates their career growth with creativity, efficiency, good humor,
healthy ambition, challenging thinking, and hard work. We try to promote a scientific philosophy where seniority
and intellectual hierarchy means horizontal exchange of ideas with respect and motivation.
