12 June 2017QuTech researchers develop a new technique to shuttle single electrons
Scientists at QuTech from Delft University of Technology are able to spatially shuttle quantum bits by preparing empty quantum dots and rapidly shuttling electrons through these dots by applying specific voltages to nearby gates. The shuttling of the electrons results in observed phase oscillations that allow the researchers to verify that the spin phase is preserved. This is important for future steps: ‘we have managed to point out several possible improvements…

Our focus areas: what we are working on

Quantum Technology is a key future emerging technology. QuTech is at the forefront of research and development in quantum technology. QuTech currently has three research & technology roadmaps and one partnering roadmap. Additional roadmaps will be developed in the next five years. Quantum research in Delft is at the forefront of new developments with seminal discoveries in superconductor- and semiconductor-based qubits, the discovery of the Majorana.

Quantum Age

Quantum science has entered a transformational phase from university-based research to engineering-driven technologies. Seemingly fundamental limitations of quantum systems have recently been overcome. Although significant challenges remain available to create further scientific breakthroughs, we have also reached the point where quantum science is ready for engineering.

Delft Quantum Campus

The Netherlands has an innovative ecosystem in the high-tech industry supply chain. In the Netherlands a well-trained and talented human capital pool is already present and can be further expanded towards this future technology. The very first quantum technology startups and SMEs addressing these markets are already sprouting.

QuTech as key player

Quantum research in Delft is at the forefront of new developments with seminal discoveries in superconductor- and semiconductor-based qubits, the discovery of the Majorana fermion, and the recent demonstration of teleportation between two chips separated by 3 meters. In order to enable the existing and future European high-tech industry to gain a sizeable portion of the future quantum sector, TU Delft and TNO have established joint a center of know-how with Industrial partners.
