While superconducting qubits represent a promising technological platform for quantum computation, a good enough control of the mechanisms of decoherence and dissipation in these systems is still an experimental challenge. In particular, Josephson’s key theoretical prediction that quasiparticle dissipation should vanish in transport through a junction when the phase difference across the junction is π has never been observed.

QUTE-EUROPE contribution to FET public consultation

Summary: 

QUTE-EUROPE submitted a position document titled "Quantum Technologies in H2020" to the recently launched FET public consultation.

As many of you probably know, the EC has launched an online consultation to identify game-changing directions for future research in FET related technological domains. The purpose of this consultation is to initiate thinking about future proactive initiatives to be included in the next FET workprogramme for 2016 and 2017.
