Around the World in 24 Days: Leibniz IPHT launches Advent Calendar with International Researchers
Childhood memories, traditions and family quirks: 24 stories from 24 countries open a window to the world every day
Christmas is different in the Corona year 2020. How do we get into a reflective mood when home is far away and cozy rounds of Glühwein are cancelled this time? — We travel around the world in 24 days!
We asked our international colleagues what they associate with Christmas. And we got to hear 24 wonderful, funny, exciting, interesting and absolutely heartwarming stories — about beautiful childhood memories, remarkable traditions and family quirks: Around the World in 24 Days // Christmas Stories by Leibniz IPHT. Our Advent calendar opens a window on the world every day until Christmas. How does a British Christmas cake with lots of schnapps taste, why do the trees in Syria bend their tops, what does the Thuringian engineer put into good old German potato salad, what does a Christmas carol from Ghana sound like and what, well, comes out of a well-fed Catalan tree trunk in the end?
The Christmas Stories are an invitation to spend the most wonderful time of the year together despite distance and to share moments full of confidence and anticipation — for this Christmas and for all the Christmases to come. Leibniz IPHT wishes everyone a happy Advent season.

Leibniz IPHT works on the first German quantum computer as part of the collaborative project QSolid
Building a complete quantum computer is the goal of the five-year QSolid collaborative project, 89.8 % of which are funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The quantum computer to be developed will contain several next-generation superconducting quantum processors and will significantly exceed the computing power of today’s supercomputers for specific tasks. Core expertise and initial circuits also come from Thuringia: Leibniz IPHT is contributing its experience in the production and characterization of superconducting circuits to the project and will help to advance the realization of significantly more powerful quantum computers by developing new fabrication processes.
