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.


PGI Colloquium: Prof. Dr. Rami Barends, Forschungszentrum Jülich (PGI-13), Germany; previously Google LLC, USA

One of the outstanding scientific challenges of this decade is the construction of an architecture and development of a methodology that can enable useful quantum computing. Superconducting quantum circuits have demonstrated unparalleled performance, by outperforming the world's most powerful supercomputers on a specific sampling task.
