Annual Report 2023

We are proud to present the annual report for 2023. Together, we’re not just moving forward; we’re building momentum, bit by bit, towards our mission of creating the quantum future. Reflecting on the past year, we’ve accomplished significant milestones. Among them, our research efforts yielded a new, bottom-up approach to making robust qubits, a chessboard-like method for addressing many quantum dots, and an expanded collaboration with Fujitsu on colour centre qubits.

Furthermore, we developed the QuTech EtiQuette, promoting socially responsible behaviour. 2023 also marked a significant turning point as the size of the workforce in QuTech spin-offs surpassed that of QuTech itself.

This report gives a brief overview of our organization, including research & engineering, innovation & collaboration, education, outreach, and people & prizes.

Annual Report 2022

We are proud to present our annual report for 2022. Together, we have accomplished important milestones towards our mission of creating the quantum future. To name a few: we produced the first industrially manufactured quantum bit together with our partner Intel. We succeeded in teleporting quantum information across a rudimentary network of 3 nodes. QuTech’s spin-off Q*Bird began connecting the port of Rotterdam to a quantum network that cannot be tapped or hacked. In addition, an international review committee concluded that the quality of QuTech research and engineering activities is excellent beyond doubt.

Annual Report 2021

We look back with pride on a year of personal and collective highlights. In April, we received the wonderful news that the full proposal of the Quantum Delta NL consortium was granted by the National Growth Fund. In October, Lieven Vandersypen received the Spinoza Award, the highest award in Dutch science. And in November, we launched the demonstrator platform Quantum Network Explorer, bringing the possibilities of quantum internet to everyone’s home. Throughout the year, we have witnessed strong growth of our local quantum ecosystem.

Annual Report 2020

2020 has been a year of scientific and organizational highlights, but also a year of empty corridors and online meetings. It has required us to reinvent ourselves and it has been a challenging ride for everyone. We are particularly proud of the QuTech staff, who have been able to keep out institute working in such difficult times. Remote and on-site we have continued to pursue our mission: developing scalable prototypes of a quantum computer and an inherently safe quantum internet, based on the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics.
