All questions answered by Dr. Thomas Monz from the Universität Innsbruck, Austria. What do you want to achieve in this project? The AQTION project will realise a scalable European quantum computer that is based on the manipulation of single-charged atoms. Here, each charged atom or ion corresponds to a quantum bit – the smallest unit of quantum information. We will realise registers with up to 50 qubits , control each of the quantum bits individually with high performance, to realise a device that can achieve a computational advantage over all known classical computers.
