At Fraunhofer IAF, we conduct research in the field of electronics and diamond for quantum computing. Our goal is to contribute to advances in the performance of entangled qubits and quantum memories, to increase the achievable computing times of quantum computers with novel quantum hardware and to reduce error rates.
We cover the entire value chain: from the development of novel material structures and process technologies, the accompanying characterization and quality assurance of quantum electronic devices, research on novel packaging and assembly technologies to the demonstration of powerful quantum memories and processing components. Furthermore, critical performance parameters of relevant quantum hardware are tested in practical computing processes and used in joint projects with universities, extramural research institutions and companies for hardware development for the next generation of high-performance computers.
New machines for future devices
Fraunhofer IAF upgrades its equipment for the production of nanostructures and its competence in material analysis.
