ScienceAtHome has its origins at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Aarhus University, and while we have branched out since our birth, we maintain a strong quantum presence.
As part of this, we have developed a number of quantum games and tools for citizen science, research, and education. Additionally, we are involved in a number of initiatives designed to allow students and other interested citizens to learn more about quantum mechanics and its applications and implications in today’s society and economy.

Quantum Tools


Quantum Composer is an interactive tool for visualizing and simulating quantum mechanical concepts and systems. Find it here.


The QEngine is a numerical quantum simulation and optimization library written in the C++ programming language. Read more here

The Alice Framework

In 2016 we had the Alice challenge running where players were grouped together online to optimize solutions. These solutions were carried out in the experimental lab. 


Vlab is a virtual version of our laboratory in the basement at Aarhus University. Read more here
