The SQUBIT Project

Superconducting Qubits:
Quantum Computing with Josephson Junctions

This collaboration addresses a number of fundamental problems within the IST field of "Future and Emerging Technologies". The conceptual focus of research lies in "Quantum computing and communications", while the technologies employed fall within the area of "Nanotechnology information devices".

Superconducting technologies have the unique potential for realizing compact solid-state devices with controllable macroscopic quantum properties and long coherence time. They represent probably the most realistic approach for a technology of quantum computers.
