Quantum Information Science (QIS) is a very new emerging research and education frontier that has generated a great deal of interest and stimulated novel potential applications in the last few years. It combines and draws on the disciplines of physical science, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. Its aim is to understand how certain fundamental laws of quantum physics can be harnessed to dramatically improve the storage, processing and transmission of information. Quantum physics, information theory, and computer science are among the crowning intellectual achievements of the past century. Now, as the twenty-first century starts, a new synthesis of these themes is underway. Advances in QIS will become increasingly critical to our national competitiveness in the quantum technology in the new millennium.

Focused on there topics:

(a) Quantum Entanglement and Decoherence,
(b) Quantum Transport and Quantum Control,
(c) Quantum Optics and Quantum Communication (experimentally related).
