Quantum Processor made in Germany

Germany Flag

An alliance between Forschungszentrum Jülich and the semiconductor manufacturer Infineon, together with institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (IAF, IPMS) as well as the Leibniz Association (IHP, IKZ), the universities of Regensburg and Konstanz and the quantum start-up HQS aims to build a semiconductor quantum processor made in Germany that is based on the “shuttling” of electrons and is to be achieved with technology available in Germany.

The QUASAR project, which is funded with over 7.5 million euros by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), aims to lay the foundations for the industrial production of quantum processors over the next four years.

The QUASAR project will run until January 2025. The next step is to build a demonstrator with around 25 coupled qubits, which will be implemented in a follow-up project and integrated into the modular HPC environment of the Jülich Supercomputing Centre via the Jülich User Infrastructure for Quantum Computing (JUNIQ) with cloud access.
