The “GeQCoS“ collaboration project
Technologies for More Powerful Quantum Computers
Quantum computers including error correction, if can be built, will efficiently solve problems that could not be solved in the past. Examples are calculations of properties of complex molecules or solutions of optimization problems for industrial manufacturing processes. Within the framework of the “GeQCoS“ collaboration project, Germany’s leading researchers in the area of superconducting quantum circuits are working on innovative concepts for designing better quantum processors.
Researchers from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are heavily involved in the project, and will focus on novel hardware: quantum materials for qubits, and quantum technologies for qubit readout and coupling. Apart from KIT, the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Walther Meißner Institute of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences, Technical University of Munich, Infineon, and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics are involved in the project. The “GeQCoS“ project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research with EUR 14.5 million. Of these, more than 3 million euros go to KIT.
