Open Solicitation for Research Proposals

About Open Solicitation for Research Proposals

MEXT : Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.

Quantum cybernetics is a new interdisciplinary field of research involving quantum manipulation and detection in a wide range of physical systems. For its realization, we are carrying out interdisciplinary research encompassing many different areas of physics and engineering. Based on innovative coherent device science and technology, we aim to create a new interdisciplinary research field with the primary objective of achieving quantum information processing. Researchers from different disciplines are working together to develop their areas of quantum cybernetics, with a view to collaboration among research programs. In this research field, we are promoting fruitful collaboration between research programs, making use of publicly solicited research projects. We are pursuing collaborative research maintaining a balance between experimental and theoretical researchers. Regardless of the type of physical system, we are actively fostering collaboration among researchers of coherent quantum systems, particularly among the relevant research groups.
