JARA-Institute Quantum Information (PGI-11)

Our institute pursues a diverse set of topics that further our theoretical understanding of electronic systems and devices at nano- and atomic scales, and the application of these small quantum systems to new forms of information processing.

Institute Heads: Prof. Dr. David DiVincenzo, Prof. Dr. Hendrik Bluhm

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. Albert Polman, NWO-Institute AMOLF, the Netherlands

We use cathodoluminescence imaging spectroscopy (CL) as a powerful tool to characterize optical metasurfaces at deep-subwavelength spatial resolution.[1] In CL, a 5-30 keV electron beam is raster-scanned over the surface while the emitted radiation in the optical and near-infrared spectral range is detected.
