Matter and Light for Quantum Computing

 

Summary

About ML4Q

 

“Matter and Light for Quantum Computing” (ML4Q) is
a new Cluster of Excellence funded within the Excellence Strategy by the German Research Foundation (DFG).
It is a cooperation by the universities of
Cologne, Aachen,
and
Bonn, as well as the Research Center Jülich.

Science

 

The aim of ML4Q is to develop new computing and networking architectures using the principles of quantum mechanics. Computing and networking power beyond anything classically imaginable would make quantum computers powerful tools in key areas such as materials design, pharmaceutics, or artificial intelligence. Quantum communication could be made effectively secure.
ML4Q builds on and extends the complementary expertise in the three key research fields (solid-state physics, quantum optics, and quantum information science) at the partner institutions in order to develop the best hardware platform for quantum information technology, and provide comprehensive blueprints for a functional quantum information network.
