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

Innovations for Quantum Computing with Topological Insulators

Forschungszentrum Jülich and the University of Würzburg will together investigate the quantum phenomena of topological materials and the opportunities they present within quantum computing. The Free State of Bavaria is funding the project to the tune of € 13 million.


PGI Colloquium: Prof. Dr. Adam Kaminski, Iowa State University and Ames Laboratory, USA

Topological materials are characterized by the presence of nontrivial quantum electronic states, where often the electron spin is locked to its momentum. This opens up the possibility for developing new devices in which information is processed or stored by means of spin rather than charge.
