28 November 2019Srijit Goswami wins NWO KLEIN Grant
Today, NWO announced that Srijit Goswami is one of the 20 winners of the KLEIN grant, intended for innovative, high-quality, fundamental research and/or studies involving matters of scientific urgency. Goswami will study self-tuned topological states in semiconductor quantum wells. Majoranas are exotic particles that could one day be used to build powerful quantum computers. Several experimental parameters must be finely tuned to create Majoranas, which is what currently makes it…

Mission-driven research

QuTech is a mission-driven research centre for quantum computing and quantum internet that aims to develop scalable prototypes of a quantum computer and inherently safe quantum internet based on superposition and entanglement, by bringing world-class scientists, engineers and industry together in an inspiring environment.

Quantum computing

Quantum computation is among the most far-reaching and challenging of quantum technologies. Based on quantum bits that can be zero and one at the same time. a quantum computer acts as a massive parallel device with an exponentially large number of computations taking place at the same time.

Quantum internet

The vision of a quantum internet is to fundamentally enhance internet technology by enabling quantum communication between any two points on Earth. Such a quantum internet may operate in parallel to the internet that we have today, and connect quantum processors in order to achieve capabilities that are provably impossible using only classical means.
