EU-funds Quantum Technology projects

All these H2020 FET projects deal with quantum phenomena (atomic scale), and explore a diverse set of applications.

AQuS will develop platforms for dynamical simulators, and use these to address largely unexplored key questions on the power of quantum simulators, as well as to probe important questions in fundamental and applied physics.

NanOQTech will develop nanoscale hybrid quantum devices that strongly couple to light. This new optical quantum technology could transform quantum communications, information processing and sensing.

nuClock proposes to develop a novel type of clock, based on a unique nuclear transition in Thorium-229.  This nuclear clock will be fundamentally different from existing atomic clocks, which are based on transitions in the electron shell. It will be largely inert to perturbations, simpler by design, and holds the potential to outperform existing atomic clocks in terms of precision.

RYSQ's goal is to implement a family of Rydberg Quantum Simulators with potential applications in artificial light harvesting systems, large quantum systems with controlled decoherence, and novel materials.

Supertwin's objective is to develop the technology for an advanced optical microscope with a resolution well beyond the current state-of-the-art for high resolution imaging. Compact, portable, superresolution microscope techniques, with no moving parts and no requirements to the optical properties of the sample are the envisaged application for this new quantum imaging technology.

QCUMbER aims to dramatically enhance quantum channel capacities per signal state, enable precision time-frequency measurements beyond classical boundaries and open new avenues to scalable quantum information processing.

QUCHIP aims at implementing quantum simulation on integrated photonic processors to perform tasks with controlled quantum systems going beyond what can be achieved with ordinary digital computers.

QUIC seeks to understand quantitatively the subtle interplay of quantum phenomena in insulators and conductors, and lay the foundations for the design of the quantum materials of tomorrow.

QuProCS works on the development of a radically new approach to probe complex quantum systems for quantum simulations, based on the quantification and optimisation of the information that can be extracted by an immersed quantum probe as opposed to a classical one.
