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.
The new annual report of Leibniz IPHT guides you visually impressive and entertaining through an eventful and successful year 2021. Exciting projects, fascinating research topics as well as current facts and figures from the reporting period take interested readers on a scientific journey of discovery.
Current medical imaging techniques mostly provide information based on morphological or anatomic differences of the tissue, disregarding the underlying molecular composition. Molecular-sensitive methods, such as Raman spectroscopy, have shown significant potential for clinical in vivo diagnostics by providing the intrinsic molecular fingerprint of a sample label-free, without contact, and non-destructive. The advantage is that the information can be used to detect and potentially delineate cancer from healthy tissues. However, current implementations of fiber optic probe-based Raman systems remain far behind the technological possibilities the method can offer.
From August 1st, 2022, Leibniz IPHT will expand its research portfolio with its new "Smart Photonics" Working Group. The physicist, Dr. Mario Chemnitz, will establish a new group at the institute over the next five years thanks to the CZS Nexus funding from the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung to research smart processors for modern diagnostics.
The works council election is on April 5, 2022 - The election committee would like to thank the current works council for its great commitment over the past four years.
More than one billion people suffer from diseases of the central nervous system, such as epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease. To better understand neurological disorders and to develop therapies, researchers need to look deep into the neuronal control center to expand their knowledge of the structure, the interplay, and the interactions of nerve cells. Leibniz-IPHT was now able to secure a grant from the European Research Council (ERC) for the further development of precise neuroscientific instruments.
Scientists from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz-IPHT) in Jena developed an "intelligent" residual sum of squares that cannot only be used despite systematic errors but can also correct them.
