A step towards Luxembourg’s first quantum computer

Published on 31/08/2023

Taking a look back at the success stories of 2022 at LIST, Florian Kaiser joined the Materials Department to create a new research group dedicated to materials for quantum computing.

"The technology we investigate has the potential to make use of silicon carbide semiconductor foundries to produce quantum chips at large scales and cheap costs." Florian KAISER, Leader of the Quantum Materials Group

Over the next five years, the overall objective is to demonstrate the generation, manipulation and use of the qubits needed to demonstrate the first quantum computing originating from Luxembourg technology. The technology studied has the potential to generate more than ten qubits interlinked by a basic device drawing on the atomically controlled silicon vacancy on ultra-high-purity substrates.

This technology will be developed under the responsibility of Florian Kaiser, one of the world’s experts in this technology. Florian previously held the post of assistant professor at the University of Stuttgart.
