Isaac L. Chuang is an American electrical engineer and physicist. He leads the quanta research group at the Center for Ultracold Atoms at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He received his undergraduate degrees in physics (1990) and electrical engineering (1991) and master's in electrical engineering (1991) at MIT. In 1997 he received his PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
Chuang is one of the pioneers of NMR quantum computing. Since 2003, Chuang has focused his attention on trapped ion approaches to quantum computing, as the field of liquid state NMR quantum computing fell out of favor due to limitations on its scalability beyond tens of qubits due to noise.
While employed at IBM in 1999, Chuang was to be featured in a film by Errol Morris, commissioned by IBM for an internal conference on the occasion of the year 2000. The conference was cancelled and the film was never completed, however excerpts including Chuang can be viewed at Morris's personal web site.
