The quantum physics of superconducting circuits will be applied in new ways to realize circuits where the single charge quantum plays the dual role of the flux quantum in classical Josephson junction circuits. Building on the recent advances in superconducting quantum bit circuits, we will theoretically model, design, fabricate and measure a specific set of circuits which probe the little-explored regime of equally strong Josephson and charging energies, yet well isolated from dissipation so as to achieve strong quantum behaviour of the phase or charge.

QUEVADIS

Full Name: 
Quantum engineering via dissipation
Coordinator: 
VERSTRAETE, Frank
Running time: 
2009-06-01 - 2012-05-31

QUEVADIS aims to study quantum computation and information processing in a model where information processing is achieved by dissipation or decoherence. The starting point of the proposal is a recent result showing that if system-environment interaction is engineered in a certain very specific way, then universal quantum computation can be achieved simply by letting the system decohere.

QUANTIP

Full Name: 
Quantum integrated photonics
Coordinator: 
THOMPSON, Mark
Running time: 
2010-02-01 - 2013-01-31

QUANTIP aims to develop the tools, components and concepts that will enable progress towards large-scale, integrated quantum photonic circuits for the development of advanced quantum systems for the purposes of quantum communications, information processing and metrology. A range of discrete integrated quantum photonic components will be developed and then integrated to form proof-of-principle demonstrators of fully- integrated prototypes, where all major components are integrated onto a single chip.

PICC

Full Name: 
The Physics of Ion Coulomb Crystals
Coordinator: 
Giovanna Morigi
Running time: 
2010-06-01 - 2013-05-31

PICC aims to identify tools for controlling ion crystal as their size is scaled up, develop strategies for implementing quantum dynamics of mesoscopic ion Coulomb crystals in a noisy environment and explore the capability of ion Coulomb crystals as quantum simulators. The targeted breakthrough is a ten fold increase in the number of entangled ions available for quantum operation operations. The long-term vision underlying this proposal is to engineer quantum correlations and entanglement in ion Coulomb crystals in order to exploit them for technological purposes of different kinds.

MOLSPINQIP intends to prove the validity of molecular spin clusters as building blocks for scalable quantum information architectures, focussing on the engineering of new molecules and on the design of suitable computational schemes.

HIP

Full Name: 
Hybrid Information Processing
Coordinator: 
ILLUMINATI, Fabrizio
Running time: 
2008-11-01 - 2011-10-31

HIP addresses the problem of scaling quantum processors by attempting to build elementary hybrid atom-photon devices and develop the schemes for their integration on platforms capable of being miniaturised and scaled up in functional networks.

GEOMDISS

Full Name: 
Geometric phases, pumping, and dissipation in quantum devices
Coordinator: 
SHNIRMAN, Alexander
Running time: 
2009-09-01 - 2012-08-31

The aim of this project is to investigate how dissipation influences the geometric phases and geometric pumping in quantum solid-state devices and to assess the role of geometric manipulations in future ICT applications. Since all realistic solid-state devices suffer from dissipation due to their coupling to uncontrolled environment with many degrees of freedom it is crucial to understand how the geometric effects are modified and whether they are still useful.
