07 April 2017Eerste bouwplan voor kwantumcomputer
Bouwplan kwantumcomputer Codes kraken, lastige berekeningen supersnel uitvoeren... kwantumcomputers moeten het straks allemaal kunnen. Tenminste, dat is de belofte. Het vakblad Science Advances publiceert deze week voor het eerst een bouwplan voor zo'n computer - van de hand van een onderzoeksgroep waarbij ook Google betrokken is. Julia Cramer vertelt in Nieuws en Co over de voortgang van het onderzoek naar de verschillende onderdelen die nodig zijn in zo'n computer. Zij…

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. uantum research in Delft is at the forefront of new developments with seminal discoveries in superconductor- and semiconductor-based qubits, the discovery of the Majorana.

Why now

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.

Why here

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.

Why us

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.
