Regional Network, International Recognition: IPHT Looks Back on a Successful Year 2008
The Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT) in Jena, Germany, has celebrated various successes in the past year, particularly at the international level. Also domestically, the Institute is strongly engaged and takes a leading role in many projects. That was the positive conclusion the Institute’s executive committee drew during the annual meeting of the scientific advisory council.
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.
