Quantum computers and their applications


Quantum computing promises to be able to solve problems through highly parallel data processing that are hardly solvable with today's computing power. But how do they work and what are the differences to classical computers? This animation illustrates it.

Quantum computers for logistics and a greener future


One area of application for which quantum computers are virtually predestined is the optimization of logistics processes. This animation explains how this works and how it contributes to a greener future.

Quantum sensing: Detecting tiny magnetic fields with diamond sensors

In order to identify magnetic fields with diamond sensors, a nitrogen atom is introduced into a tiny diamond tip. Even the smallest magnetic fields can be detected by ESR spectroscopy using the electrons of the nitrogen vacancy center.

Cancer diagnostics with diamond

With the help of quantum effects in diamond, we have the chance to revolutionize cancer diagnostics.
