Quantum Computing Cover Story of “effzett” Receives Two Awards
Forschungszentrum Jülich’s research magazine effzett has received three awards. Within the scope of the International Creative Media Award (ICMA), effzett issue 3/2021 and effzett issue 1/2022 received one award each in the categories “cover story”, “magazines online”, and “magazines print”.
We are proud of being a part of the cover story of the effzett 1/2022 issue - Cool calculators.
In the article, our experts provide insight into the topic of quantum computing. Physicist Carsten Degenhardt and his team at ZEA-2 are developing integrated nano- and microelectronic systems - including cryogenic-electronics for quantum computers. Electrical engineer Patrick Vliex designed the prototype for the new cryogenic chip.
For the past 5 years the experts at ZEA-2 are working on their own chips. First, it was necessary to clarify the special requirements that a quantum processor presents to such a chip. For this purpose, the our team contacted the physicists led by Prof. Hendrik Bluhm at the JARA Institute for Quantum Information. Bluhm is working on a “Made in Germany” semiconductor quantum processor in the QUASAR project. Close cooperation developed between the JARA researchers, especially René Otten, and ZEA-2.
Find out more about our work in the quantum computer and chip field at ZEA-2. Jülich researchers are developing cryogenic-electronics that control qubits. Why and how they do it is explained in the award winning issue of effzett.
The cover story of effzett issue 1/2022 "Cool calculators" received a silver award (online magazine) and a bronze award (print magazine).
