Physics of Nanoscale Systems (ER-C-1) / Microstructure Research (PGI-5)

Development of new procedures for understanding material properties on the atomic level with a special focus on ultrahigh resolution electron microscopy techniques. In the near future, the life sciences will be added as the first new field of application. Furthermore, we enable researchers from science and industry to use our instruments and methods, supported by our experts, and aim to establish a national user facility for the scientific community.

Quantum Bit from High Temperature Superconductor

Jülich, 13 February 2020 - Although they were actually pursuing a different goal, scientists from Jülich, Münster and Moscow discovered a method that could one day pave the way for quantum computers to leave specialized laboratories behind and enter into much wider usage. The key to this is a material for qubits that does not need to be cooled to near absolute zero.
