QuTech researcher Tim Taminiau is awarded a Dutch Vidi grant by NWO for his work on the protection of quantum computations. NWO grants experienced researchers 800,000 Euro to develop an independent and innovative line of research.
Tim Taminiau will focus on the fault-tolerant protection of quantum information by storing the information in multiple quantum bits in diamond quantum processors. Making quantum information tolerant to errors is essential for large-scale quantum computations. The results of the research will provide experimental insights into possibilities and limits of fault-tolerance and error correction under realistic noise in quantum systems. Furthermore, the experimentally developed multi-qubit diamond processors will be powerful building blocks for future quantum networks.
In total, eight researchers at TU Delft received a Vidi grant!
