Research Overview


Quantum technology, particularly quantum information science and the development of future electronics, is considered to be one of the major technologies that would totally change human life and lead us into the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It lies at the heart of many future technologies because most of the future technologies – for example, the artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), and their future development and potential – are all based on and limited by the power of computation and communication. It is believed that only the quantum information processing can fully allow AI and other relevant technologies to achieve their potential or even revolutionize them. We are now entering the era of the so-called second quantum revolution, where many intriguing quantum properties such as superposition, entanglement and nonlocality can be utilized to develop new technologies. Implementation of these quantum technologies combines a wide range of research, from the quantum theory and algorithms to all aspects of quantum engineering in materials, devices, architectures, etc.


Over the past decade, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) has spent a lot of resources and manpower towards quantum science and technology. This investment has led to the finest research outcomes in Taiwan and a new research Center for Quantum Frontiers of Research & Technology (QFort). Quantum science and technology is a highly interdisciplinary field, associated with physics, nanotechnology, material science, electrical engineering, computer science, and so on. QFort at NCKU has successfully integrated outstanding scientists and engineers from different disciplines and different countries to serve as a research hub and facilitate the development of quantum technology.



Our Focus

We focuses on three strongly correlated research directions: (1) Theory for quantum devices and quantum computations, (2) superconductor-semiconductor (and other emergent materials) hybrid quantum devices and qubits, and (3) quantum material foundry.

Quantum Theory

Many outstanding enterprises, including Google, Microsoft, Intel, and IBM, etc., have started to develop their own quantum computers or quantum software. Their ultimate goal is to construct large-scale universal quantum compute...

Quantum Materials

Emergent quantum materials can create new paths to advance quantum technology since intriguing and exotic quantum features contained in these materials can lead to new design principles and architectures in quantum logics, e.g....


Quantum tic-tac-toe

Quantum tic-tac-toe is a "quantum generalization" of tic-tac-toe in which the players' moves are "superpositions" of plays in the classical game. The game was invented by Allan Goff of Novatia Labs, who describes it as "a way o...
