02 August 2017Improving understanding of the quantum world with quantum dots
Quantum behaviour plays a crucial role in novel and emergent material properties, such as superconductivity and magnetism. Unfortunately, it is still impossible to calculate the underlying quantum behaviour, let alone fully understand it. Scientists of QuTech, the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience in Delft and TNO, in collaboration with the ETH Zurich and the University of Maryland, have now succeeded in building an 'artificial material' that mimics this type of quantum…

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.
