The Laboratory focuses research on the development of a neutral atom quantum computer and of a quantum cryptography system. This is a particularly complex task requiring full control on quantum phases in mesoscopic systems. Arrays of ultracold neutral atoms in optical lattices and gratings present a significant interest as quantum computers qubits. These arrays can easily be isolated from the external environment. The priority area of research of the laboratory is the study of dipole blockade in mesoscopic ensembles of cold atoms in Rydberg states, for applications in quantum information science.

The laboratory partners with research groups of the Institute of Semiconductor Physics of the SB RAS, the Institute of Computational Technologies of the SB RAS, the University of Wisconsin–Madison (USA), the University of Stuttgart (Germany) and The Open-University (UK).
