IQuAn (Ionen-Quantenprozessor mit HPC-Anbindung) is starting 1.1.2021, funded by the BMBF as part of german quantum technolgies. Our research team join forces with the team of M. Müller at Jülich, the EDVZ team of A. Brinkmann in Mainz, companies TOPTICA and AKKA and Fraunhofer institutes IOF and ILT, for building and operating a quantum processor based on trapped ions with connection to the high performance computer MOGON II.
SFB306 was approve 26 Nov. 2020. We are locking forwand to interesting new physics together with our friends in Erlangen and Saarbrücken (Pressemitteilung der DFG)
Führung durch das Labor - segmentierte Mikro-Ionenfalle für Quantencomputing
Group excursion to the Radio telescope Effelsberg 17. Dez. 2019 - impressive dimensions!
We gratulate Andy Pfister for the successful defense of his PhD-thesis today, 2.Dez. 2019. After the official examination he had to solve further tests:
...and again a highlighted paper appeared in Phys. Rev. Letter 123, 106802 (2019), single Pr ions have been accurately implanted. Congratulation to the team!
Work on single ion spin-driven heat engine published in Phys. Rev. Lett. 123, 080602 (2019); and highlighted by the editors, see here and here (german text). Gratulations to the team and the successful collaboration!
