Flagship projects with participation of researchers of the University of Innsbruck: 

AQTION | Advanced quantum computing with trapped ions

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.

PASQuanS | Next generation quantum simulation platforms for real-world problems in industry

Quantum Simulation aims at addressing questions in fundamental science, materials development, quantum chemistry and real-world problems of high importance in industry. PASQuanS will develop next generation Quantum Simulation platforms for such applications. It builds on the impressive achievements of the most advanced Quantum Simulation platforms to date, based on atoms and ions, for which systems of several hundreds of qubits have been realised. By scaling up these platforms towards more than 1000 atoms or ions and by making these simulators fully programmable, PASQuanS will push these platforms far beyond both the state-of-the-art and the reach of classical computation.

QIA | Bringing the Quantum Internet to Europe

The Quantum Internet Alliance (QIA) targets a Blueprint for a pan-European Quantum Internet by ground-breaking technological advances, culminating in the first experimental demonstration of a fully integrated software stack running on a multi-node quantum network. The goal is to push the frontier of quantum network technology in two directions: On the one hand, we advance sophisticated quantum processors that can connect to the network to enable complex quantum applications to be run. We will connect three and four remote quantum network nodes, thereby making the leap from simple point-to-point connections to first multi-node networks. On the other hand, the project will demonstrate key-enabling capabilities for quantum repeaters, resulting in proof-of-principle demonstrations of elementary long-distance repeater links in the real-world. Such quantum repeaters are needed to allow quantum bits to be transmitted over long distances, with the goal to eventually connect all of Europe and the world. Hand in hand with hardware development, QIA will realise a network and software stack to enable fast and reactive control of a quantum network, and to make the network broadly useful for applications.

iqClock | Time-telling with ultra-precision

The main objective of the iqClock project is to kick-start a competitive European industry for optical clocks as well as to strengthen and accelerate the pipeline of clock development. These clocks, making use of quantum technology, will be ultra-precise and have many applications in science, technology and society (see below). For most applications, transportable, simple-to-use and affordable, optical clocks are needed and we expect our project to make a significant step towards providing them.

UNIQORN | Affordable quantum communication for everyone

The UNIQORN project wants to develop quantum devices for the mass market, based on small, cheap, robust and reliable systems. To make the second quantum revolution a success, devices need the same level of integration that microelectronic systems have achieved. UNIQORN’s mission is therefore to extend the existing photonic integration technology to accommodate quantum applications, which often have very stringent requirements and need specialised components.
The project will extend the functionality of the basic components to realise complex devices for quantum communication, which are presently found on metre-size breadboards, on millimetre-size chips. Finally, field trials will be performed to demonstrate the readiness of our technology.

Nationally funded projects:

QTFLAG|Quantum Technologies For Lattice Gauge theories
Rainer Blatt, Peter Zoller, Christine Muschik

The goal of the QTFLAG project is develop classical simulation methods inspired by quantum information science (tensor network methods) that do not suffer from the sign problem and to develop and run quantum software on quantum simulation platforms, that is, to replace classical numerical simulations with experiments where a quantum systems in the lab mimics the physics of the lattice gauge theory of interest, allowing its study in a controlled environment.

AutomatiQ |Automated quantum computing with variational algorithms
Rainer Blatt, Peter Zoller, Philipp Schindler & AQT

The aim of this project is to investigate an adaptive method for error correction that automatically adapts to the existing error processes. The method will be implemented in an ion trap experiment with a fidelity of over 99%. In order to improve the fidelity of the existing experimental setup, a partial redevelopment of the experiment control is necessary.
