Programs Quantium Information Phd- what do they look for?

  1. Oct 17, 2011 #1
    To elaborate, are they looking for a specific last year thesis for example? I'm reading a four year physics MSci.

    You need to be more specific.

    What kind of "quantum information"? Experimental (and if so which field? Optics, solid-state, ions, spins etc) or theoretical (same here algorithms, more fundamental physics etc)?

    Sorry, to specify I mean theoretical- Quantum Information Theory.

    I didn't understand your question. I am interested because I, too, like this field.

    My question is: What do PhD advisors look for in candidates that want to study Quantum Information Theory? I ask this so I can know what to focus my spare time studies on.
