Launch of Quant: building nano components for quantum computing
What is it going to be, in quantum computing? Qubits that operate at extremely low temperatures or single photons – light particles – doing their work at room temperature?
“Quantum computing highly depends on the quality of the nano devices involved.”
Prof. Floris Zwanenburg, co-director QUANT
The new Center for Quantum Nanotechnology Twente (QUANT) of the University of Twente deliberately doesn’t choose one single direction for future quantum computers: a smart combination may be the future. Thanks to the high level of facilities offered by the MESA+ NanoLab at the UT campus, it is possible to develop and build solutions of several kinds.
The newly-founded center QUANT will develop components and technology. It combines the knowledge on superconductivity, photonics and chip design.
