13 January 2020Reliable and extremely fast quantum calculations with germanium transistors
Transistors based on germanium can perform calculations for the future quantum computer. This discovery by the team of Menno Veldhorst may place the transistor, which changed our daily lives drastically since its invention in the 1940's, at the basis of the quantum revolution. The researchers at QuTech, a collaboration of TU Delft and TNO, published these results today in Nature. The development of the quantum computer, with its potentially unprecedented…

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.
