28 March 2018Majorana trilogy completed
Since the breakthrough discovery of the Majorana particle in 2012 in Delft, researchers faced great challenges. An international team of researchers from the Netherlands (QuTech, Microsoft and Eindhoven University of Technology) and United States (JQI Maryland, UC Santa Barbara) joined forces to understand the next steps required to improve the experiments. Now, the scientists provide a complete toolbox for the final proof of Majorana existence, paving the way towards 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.
