ML4Q @ Highlights der Physik in Regensburg
In a collaborative effort with the PGI Science Office at Forschungszentrum Jülich, ML4Q joined the one-week exhibition at THE physics science festival in Germany – the Highlights der Physik – which was attended by over 40,000 visitors in Regensburg from September 19 to 24.
A miniature model of a superconducting quantum computer was used to demonstrate the idea behind running research projects. Other computing platforms – including those pursued in the cluster’s program – were introduced at the booth entitled “Wie funktioniert ein Quantencomputer?” and explained by Friederike Butt (back then Master student in the Müller group at RWTH Aachen) as well as Jan Timper and Daniel Zeuch from the PGI Science Office at Forschungszentrum Jülich.
Forschungszentrum Jülich also offers a virtual version of the model which is accessible online: https://apps.fz-juelich.de/qcmodel/
During the festival, Prof. Dr. Christoph Lehner (University of Regensburg) gave a lecture on quantum computers and how they work:
