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…

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.…

MAQS

MAQS Magnetic-Atom Quantum Simulator We propose to realize a novel quantum simulator made of magnetic atoms in periodic potentials, which will enable the investigation of quantum-many body problems associated with long-range dipole-dipole interactions. Our proposal is based on a series of key new developments. We will develop new tools to increase the strength of dipole-dipole interactions (shorter-period…

eDICT

eDICT Experimentally-oriented Device Independent CrypTography Current state-of-the art quantum-assisted cryptography provides safety beyond what can be achieved with current classical technologies. Yet still, its safety is at question when we consider possibilities of quantum hacking or malicious producers of necessary quantum resources. This project aims at overcoming these main limitations by radically shifting current paradigms—by…
