Quantum Information and Information Physics at IBM Research Yorktown or IBM Almaden
`` This page is dedicated to Rolf Landauer (1927-1999) who is largely responsible form making the physics of information a
serious subject of scientific study.  During his long career at IBM Research, he continually emphasized the connection between
information processing and fundamental laws of physics, and discovered the connection between logical irreversibility and heat
generation by computers now known as Landauer's principle.  Our group's work main work is in quantum information and
computation theory, but we also study other aspects of the relation between physics and information processing ''

Quantum Information Science and Technology, DARPA,
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
 is the central research and development organization for the Department of Defense (DoD).
 It manages and directs selected basic and applied research and development projects for
DoD, and pursues research and technology where risk and payoff are both very high and
where success may provide dramatic advances for traditional military roles and missions.
