Dynamics of Quantum matter

We explore non-equilibrium many-body dynamics in quantum systems that experience symmetry-breaking, topological, or jamming transitions. These systems encompass superconductors, charge-density wave, and magnetic materials.

Experimental Soft Matter Physics

The research is conducted within the “Light and Matter” research program. The interaction of light with matter is one of the most important fields of physics and optical processes are indispensable in many branches of modern industry.

QT Future Seminar “The path towards superconducting quantum computers: interfacing qubits with classical electronics at 10 mK”

October 16, 2023 , 16:15 , F1 (FMF), Jadranska 19

Anton Potočnik, IMEC

Future quantum computers will not only be faster, but also able to solve problems that are inaccessible to classical computers. This includes cryptography, optimization and logistics, quantum chemistry, quantum mathematics, machine learning and more. The road to building useful quantum computers is challenging, but every year we are a step closer. In this colloquium, I will present our approach and achievements in hardware for building superconducting quantum computers. These include investigating energy losses at surfaces [1,2] and increasing quantum coherence by reducing electromagnetic thermal noise. I will present the latter in combination with a successful first demonstration of the integration of classical electronics with superconducting qubits [3] at temperatures around 10 mK.
