Hello guys!

How do you think what are the best American PhD schools for research in the field of quantum information technology, quantum coherence theory and other conceptual problems of quantum mechanics?

I have no idea which of universities are top in the field, for example I know that kind of study is available at Maryland or at Nortwestern University, but I wonder how strong are these schools.

thanks!

I believe USC is good (have a friend with similar interests as yours who is doing his PhD there), Rochester is good for quantum optics.., Maryland is overall very good for Physics, so if you say it has work on this stuff, it ought to be good. Stony Brook and U Chicago might be worth exploring as well.

Unfortunately, I didn't apply to one of these universities. But I think there will be some opportunities at Georgia Tech.

As an undergrad at GaTech (about to move on) who's looking to study quantum info (elsewhere) for my PhD, I'll tell you what I know. As far as I know, there are three groups at GT (other than GTRI) who are doing quantum info work, and really only two.

Alex Kuzmich's lab does quantum optics with a focus on quantum telecommunications, and if that's what you're interested in they're pretty good at it and well respected. Ken Brown's group is attempting to do quantum information with trapped ions and molecules, and while they don't have too much to show for it yet, it's definitely interesting if that's your focus, and he's a great guy.

On the other hand, the Georgia Tech Research Institute is looking to position itself as one of the main producers of Ion traps in the world. I'm not certain how one goes about doing your phd work with them, but I know someone who does. They're very serious about it, and have hired some real talent (e.g. Dr. Amini from NIST).

I hope this is helpful.
