Quantum Information and related topics is currently one of the most active and promising fields of scientific research and has experienced a spectacular growth in recent years. It has a clear interdisciplinary character (Physics, Mathematics, Information Sciences, Engineering, etc). It includes, among others, the areas of information, Comunication, Computation and Cryptography. For these reasons there is an extraordinary interest in this field, both at a fundamental level as well as in its technological applications. We propose here to expand the research lines already developed in QUIRT I as well as to integrate the expertise of the new members of the team in a consistent and ambitious project. Our effort will be directed towards proposals that can be implemented experimentally with present and emerging technologies. The main goals of the project are: - Optimization of communication strategies and estimation of quantum operations taking into account realistic conditions for its physical implementation. - Classification and characterization of quantum tasks using systems of continuous variables. - Entangled pairs of particles: Bell inequalities, complementarity and quantum eraser. - Characterization of the dynamical properties of the "entanglement" in strongly correlated ultra-cold quantum gases and spin gases. - Design of photonic quantum gates for quantum computing.
