Mission-driven research

QuTech is a mission-driven research centre for quantum computing and quantum internet that aims to develop scalable prototypes of a quantum computer and inherently safe quantum internet based on superposition and entanglement, by bringing world-class scientists, engineers and industry together in an inspiring environment.

Quantum computing

Quantum computation is among the most far-reaching and challenging of quantum technologies. Based on quantum bits that can be zero and one at the same time. a quantum computer acts as a massive parallel device with an exponentially large number of computations taking place at the same time.

Quantum internet

The vision of a quantum internet is to fundamentally enhance internet technology by enabling quantum communication between any two points on Earth. Such a quantum internet may operate in parallel to the internet that we have today, and connect quantum processors in order to achieve capabilities that are provably impossible using only classical means.
