IQST in a nutshell

The Center for Integrated Quantum Science and Technol­ogy (IQST) was estab­lished in 2014 as one of the first hubs world­wide dedicated to the devel­op­ment of innov­a­tive technolo­gies from funda­men­tal quantum physics. The key to achiev­ing this goal is to stimu­late, expand, and support syner­gies between the fields of natural and engineer­ing sciences.

As IQST enters its second decade, quantum technolo­gies are rapidly becom­ing avail­able for appli­ca­tions in ever new areas. For us, this means further expand­ing our mission to explore new and uncharted frontiers, address societal challenges, to meet the needs of an emerg­ing quantum-technology ecosys­tem, and to promote quantum science and technol­ogy in a society that is becom­ing increas­ingly aware of the poten­tial of quantum technologies.

PhD projects

A network of opportunities

We bring together a team of physi­cists, chemists, engineers, mathe­mati­cians, and life scien­tists working in dedicated state-of-the-art facil­i­ties at the Univer­sity of Stuttgart, Ulm Univer­sity, and the Max Planck Insti­tute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart as well as at other univer­si­ties in the state of Baden-Württemberg.
