Quantum Communication

QuDeT

Full Name: 
Quantum devices in topological matter: carbon nanotubes, graphene, and novel superfluids
Coordinator: 
Pertti Hakonen
Running time: 
2016-01-01 - 2020-12-31

The project addresses quantum devices in hybrid systems formed using carbon nanotubes, graphene, and 3He superfluid, all with particular topological characteristics. Topological properties of these non-trivial materials can be drastically modified by introducing defects or interfaces into them, like single layer graphene into superfluid helium, boron nitride between graphene sheets, carbon nanotubes in 3He superfluid, or misfit dislocation layers into HOPG graphite.

NEMSQED

Full Name: 
Electromechanical quantum coherent systems
Coordinator: 
Mika Sillanpää
Running time: 
2010-01-01 - 2014-12-31

NEMSQED is a research effort where superconducting and nanomechanical systems ares studied near the quantum limit.  The aim is to forge a hybrid macroscopic quantum system of superconducting qubits, electrical resonators and nanomechanical resonators, with highly beneficial potential applications in quantum information processing and quantum communication.

The project is an individual European Research Council (ERC) grant allocated to Dr. Mika Sillanpää, currently working as a Professor at the Department of Applied Physics at Aalto University.

Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology Research Group at the University of Southampton

Research Type: 
Theory
Experiment

Our expertise is to fabricate various nano-electronic devices using our £120M clean room complex, the Southampton Nanofabrication Centre (http://www.southampton-nanofab.com) opened in 2009, one of the best university-based fabrication facilities in Europe. The cleanroom supports cutting-edge research activities in nano-electronics, photonics, and fibre optics. The full CMOS front-end and backend process tools are available for 6-inch wafers.

2016 Quantum Conference in Amsterdam

Summary: 

The Netherlands is planning to organize a Quantum Technologies conference in spring 2016 in Amsterdam in cooperation with the European Commission.

 

To enhance overall interest, activity and investment in Quantum Technologies across Europe, the Netherlands is planning to organize a conference in Amsterdam in cooperation with the European Commission. The aim of the conference is to foster collaboration between European scientific and industry communities, showcase innovation and provide a platform to present a comprehensive vision and roadmap across the spectrum of Quantum Technologies. The Presidency will report the conclusions of the Conference to the Competitiveness Council in May 2016.
