MCQST brings together two universities (LMU, TUM), two research institutions (MPQ, WMI) and the Deutsches Museum (DM) as core institutions of the cluster. The partners offer broad expertise in different fields of research, engineering and public engagement that complement each other. Additionally, various faculties and departments across different institutions are contributing to MCQST. Today, research in Quantum Science and Technology has become an interdisciplinary effort between different fields of science and engineering.
Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics
MPQ is one of 84 research institutes belonging to the Max Planck Society (MPG). This world leading institution in the ﬁeld of Quantum Optics contains five divisions, four of which are active in the field of QST.
Walther Meißner Institute
The WMI, renowned low-temperature research institute of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, has developed world-leading expertise in several fields of physics (e.g. superconductivity, magnetism, solid-state quantum systems) and technology.
The DM is the largest and among the most successful natural sciences and technology museums in the world. The museum has a longstanding tradition in bridging the gap between cutting-edge basic research and an interested public that spans virtually all age groups and educational levels.
