Experts on quantum research

Here you will find an overview of people working on quantum research at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

Prof. Stefan Blügel (PGI-1)

PGI-1 analyses and calculates structural, electronic and magnetic properties of solids and molecules that may be relevant for quantum computing

Prof. David DiVincenzo (PGI-2/PGI-11)

PGI-2 deals with theories of quantum computers and develops concepts for error correction.

PGI-11 works on semiconductor qubits and superconducting qubits and seeks to answer many theoretical questions, such as scalability and error correction.

Dr. Roman Riwar (PGI-2)

Prof. Frank Stefan Tautz (PGI-3)

PGI-3 looks for ways of assembling new materials, atom by atom, for research in the fi eld of quantum computers.

Prof. Markus Ternes (PGI-3)
Dr. Andrea Raccanelli (PGI-3)

Prof. Claus Michael Schneider (PGI-6)

PGI-6 makes electron spins usable in quantum materials.

Prof. Tommaso Calarco (PGI-8)

PGI-8 is active in basic research and deals with how qubits can be controlled and monitored.

Prof. Beata Kardynal (PGI-9)

PGI-9 is home to research on topologically protected materials that could have quantum mechanical potential.

Dr. Peter Schüffelgen (PGI-9)
Dr. Thomas Schäpers (PGI-9)

Prof. Hendrik Bluhm (PGI-11)

PGI-11 works on semiconductor qubits and superconducting qubits and seeks to answer many theoretical questions, such as scalability and error correction.

Prof. Dr. Pavel Bushev (PGI-11)

Prof. Frank Wilhelm-Mauch (PGI-12)

PGI-12 works on Quantum Computing Analytics

Prof. Kristel Michielsen (JSC)

At the JSC, computing operations of quantum computers are simulated and prototypes tested – and later their performance will be made available to users.

Prof. Thomas Lippert (JSC)

Dr. Wolfang Albrecht (HNF)

Helmholtz Nano Facility (HNF) provides the equipment and processes for the manufacture of quantum devices for research purposes.

Prof. Rafal Dunin-Borkowski (ER-C-1)

ER-C with its high-performance electron microscopes, supports materials research for the development of quantum computers.

Dr. Carsten Degenhardt (ZEA-2)

ZEA-2 develops special silicon chips that operate scalably at temperatures close to absolute zero, at the same time producing hardly any heat.
