Special lectures are arranged from time to time through video-conferencing between the partner institutes

Project Objectives

To bring together complementary research strengths of the partnering groups for rapid and effective growth of research in Quantum-Nano Computing paradigms.

To utilize the latest distance learning technologies such as videoconferencing, webcasts, e-lectures, online courses for promoting quantum-nano education and provide opportunities to young scientists and researchers.

Dissemination of knowledge in Quantum-Nano Computing to Industries / Research and Development Organizations and academia through Workshops, Joint Seminars, Courses, Webcasts and research contacts and an Annual Winter School on Quantum and Nano Computing Systems.

To promote collaboration between theoretical physicists and theoretical computer scientists and explore possible applications of the technical tools of quantum field theory and string theory to problems in condensed matter theory, which is the theoretical framework underlying experimental research in nanotechnology and quantum computing.


A Project under National Mission on Education through Information and  Communication  Technology  of  Ministry of  Human  Resource Development Government of India

The Quantum-Nano Centre is a multidisciplinary centre at Dayalbagh Educational Institute, Agra set up under MHRD National Mission on Education through ICT, with partners as IIT Kanpur, IIT Delhi and IIT Madras, besides several international collaborators. With a focus on the rapidly growing area of quantum-nano computing and quantum information sciences, the Quantum-Nano Centre provides an environment for scientists and mathematicians to explore the fundamental physical characteristics of quantum systems, to devise and implement prototype quantum computers, and to develop quantum algorithms and novel applications. Through a vigorous program of lectures, seminars, and workshops, the Centre stimulates intellectual exchange among students, faculty, and academic partners.

Our mission is to aggressively explore and advance the application of quantum-nano systems to a vast array of relevant information processing techniques. We will accomplish this by creating a truly unique environment that fosters cutting-edge research and collaboration between researchers in the areas of computer science, engineering, mathematical, chemical and physical sciences.
