Quantum Physics in Iran

Iran making tangible progress in quantum physics: AEOI chief

Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said on Saturday that the country would open a first large laboratory dedicated to quantum physics in a year.

“Related experts and managers are working day and night to finish this job as soon as possible,” said Salehi while addressing a summer course on quantum sciences and technology in Tehran.

The official said Iran had compiled its own roadmap for development of quantum technologies, saying the document would come into force once it is ratified by the parliament and other related government bodies.

He said Iran was willing to keep its pace with a fast-growing quantum science in the world, saying expert groups had been formed in the AEOI to focus on various fields where quantum sciences are increasingly applied, including in communication, imaging, and in making new computers and sensors.

He said a successful entanglement experiment for photons carried out by AEOI scientists last summer had hugely boosted the morale in the field.


The senior official said that a large research center focused on new fields of science like the stem cells and quantum physics will be built by the AEOI in a near future.

Salehi said Iranian scientists could replicate the “quick” progress achieved in the field of nuclear technology in the country over the past years.

“The quantum technology is moving so fast that if we don’t act we’ll regret it,” said the official.

Glad to see they are not far behind and recognize the importance of this field..Quantum entanglement can revolutionize the communication field.
experience is like a comb that God gives to you after you lost your hair. Undecided
