JARA-Institute Quantum Information (PGI-11)

Our institute pursues a diverse set of topics that further our theoretical understanding of electronic systems and devices at nano- and atomic scales, and the application of these small quantum systems to new forms of information processing.

Institute Heads: Prof. Dr. David DiVincenzo, Prof. Dr. Hendrik Bluhm

New method prevents quantum computers crash

Quantum information is fragile, which is why quantum computers must also be able to correct errors. But what if whole qubits are lost? Researchers at Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University, in collaboration with Universities of Innsbruck and Bologna, are presenting a method in the journal Nature that allows quantum computers to keep going even if they lose some qubits along the way.


PGI Colloquium: Prof. Dr. Peter Zoller, University of Innsbruck & Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information, Innsbruck, Austria

Quantum optical systems with cold atoms an ions provides one of the best ways to build controllable quantum many-body systems as quantum computers and quantum simulators. Here we report on recent developments in building, and in particular programming quantum simulators based on trapped ions as intermediate scale quantum devices.
