Large bodies usually follow the classical equations of motion. Deviations from this can be called
macroscopic quantum behavior. These phenomena have been experimentally verified with cavity Quantum Electro Dynamics (QED), trapped ions, and superconducting Josephson junction systems. Recently, evidence was obtained that also moving objects can display such behavior. These objects are micromechanical resonators (MR), which can measure tens of microns in size and are hence quite macroscopic. The degree of freedom is their vibrations: phonons.

MICROPHOTON

Full Name: 
Measurement and control of single-photon microwave radiation on a chip
Coordinator: 
Antti Manninen
Running time: 
2013-06-01 - 2016-05-31

We now have the ability to build electronic devices at the nanoscale and operate them at millikelvin temperatures, and this has opened up the possibility to design, operate and utilise devices based on quantum physics. Quantum devices have been used in electrical metrology for decades and now nanoscale single-electron current sources are about to take their place in the realization of the ampere.

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.

About Us

 
On December 14, 2010, the Russian Innovation Hub Skolkovo announced the selection of its first 16 resident projects. Certificate No. 13 was awarded to the project "International Center for Quantum Optics and Quantum Technologies" - the Russian Quantum Center (RQC). This day can be considered the official birthday of the RQC.

Quantum Information and Technologies (QITE)

Research Type: 
Theory
Experiment

Increasingly smaller and faster, devices for information processing are everywhere. Nevertheless, the impressive development of such technologies is threatened if the possibilities offered by quantum physics are not considered.
