Quantum information processing lies at the intersection of Information theory, Quantum mechanics and signal processing. In recent times, scientists are beginning to account for quantum effects in order to store, process and communicate information. A striking feature of quantum mechanics is the principle of superposition that has no classical counterpart. Another feature that catches attention of everyone working in the area of quantum mechanics is the phenomenon of entanglement. Feynmann said that “Entanglement is characteristic trait of quantum mechanics”. Ever since the discovery of super dense coding by Bennett and Wiesner, entanglement is being pursued as an important resource.

At PNSIL, we work on fundamental problems of communication that make use of entanglement. We are interested in understanding the structure of entanglement and how it can be put to use to perform tasks impossible in the classical world.
