ShoQC

ShoQC Short-range optical Quantum Connections The project is concerned with the possibility of connecting heterogeneous quantum devices in a room, a building, or between buildings on a campus or in a limited neighbourhood. The challenge is to develop optical quantum connections versatile enough to connect different physical quantum platforms and faithfully carry a broad range of quantum states including discrete…

SiUCs

SiUCs Superinductor-based Quantum Technologies with Ultrastrong Couplings Superconducting quantum circuits form one of the most promising solid state platforms for quantum computing. This success builds on the naturally large interaction between light, represented by microwave signals, and matter, embodied by superconducting qubits. Microwave photons are used at every stage of quantum information protocols: qubit manipulation,…

ApresSF

ApresSF Application-ready superresolution in space and frequency The wave-particle duality of light introduces two fundamental problems to imaging: the diffraction limit and photon shot noise. With quantum information theory one can tackle both of them with a single holistic formalism: model the light as a quantum object, consider any quantum measurement, and pick the one that gives…

SECRET

SECRET SECuRe quantum communication based on Energy-Time/time-bin entanglement Quantum communications (QC) is one of the main areas of the broader field of Quantum Technologies. The most well-known application of QC is in communication security, where huge progress has been observed since the first demonstrations of quantum key distribution (QKD). Another important application of QC is…

QuICHE

QuICHE Quantum information and communication with high-dimensional encoding High-dimensional (HD) photonic quantum information (QI) promises considerable advantages compared to the two-dimensional qubit paradigm, from increased quantum communication rates to increased robustness for entanglement distribution. This project aims to unlock the potential of HD QI by encoding information in the spectral-temporal (ST) degrees of freedom of…

QuCoS

QuCoS Quantum Computation with Schrödinger cat states This project seeks to establish a radically new, alternative approach to realizing the fundamental building blocks of quantum computers with superconducting qubits. In the next 3 years, we plan to employ only a handful of realistic components to realize robust error-corrected logical quantum bits. We aim to demonstrate the same…

QuantHEP

QuantHEP Quantum Computing Solutions for High-Energy Physics The key goal of project QuantHEP – Quantum Computing Solutions for High-Energy Physics is to develop quantum algorithms as a solution to the increasingly challenging, and soon intractable, problem of analysing and simulating events from large particle-physics experiments. The acronym QuantHEP comes from the merging of the names of…

Qu3D

Qu3D Quantum 3D Imaging at high speed and high resolution Qu3D aims at designing and implementing quantum plenoptic cameras: radically novel 3D imaging devices exploiting both momentum-position entanglement and photon-number correlations to enable the typical refocusing and ultra-fast, scanning-free, 3D imaging capabilities of plenoptic devices, but with dramatically enhanced performances: diffraction-limited resolution, unattainable in standard…

PACE-IN

PACE-IN Photon-Atom Cooperative Effects at Interfaces Functional devices for quantum information processing and communication must make use of appropriate matter-light interfaces. Their key role in bringing quantum devices towards practical applications is essential. Hence, building the conceptual and technological base for such interfaces will pave the way for the scalable quantum computation and quantum Internet.…
