Innovations for Quantum Computing with Topological Insulators

Forschungszentrum Jülich and the University of Würzburg will together investigate the quantum phenomena of topological materials and the opportunities they present within quantum computing. The Free State of Bavaria is funding the project to the tune of € 13 million.

RESCHEDULED - PGI Colloquium:

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) can be combined with electron spin resonance. The major advantage of spin resonance is the fact that the energy resolution is independent of the temperature and thus can be much higher than a Fermi-function limited spectroscopy technique such as STM tunneling.
