EU project to develop scalable silicon qubits
Four year project to lay the foundation for industrial-scale implementation of semiconductor quantum processors.

"We intend to use our know-how and infrastructure to enable highly scalable quantum processors that build on the achievements and advantages of silicon-based semiconductor manufacturing. This concerns, for example, manufacturing processes for nanopatterning, but also material development and electrical manipulation and readout. In close cooperation with Infineon Dresden, RWTH Aachen and FZ Jülich we intend to demonstrate manufacturable and scalable qubit technology on CMOS-compatible wafer level," explains Dr. Benjamin Uhlig, business unit manager for Next Generation Computing at Fraunhofer IPMS.

The project is a recent addition to the EU’s Quantum Flagship program, a 10-year, R&D initiative launched in 2018. The overall goal is to consolidate and expand European scientific leadership and excellence in quantum computing, to kick-start a competitive European industry in quantum technologies and to make Europe a dynamic and attractive region for innovative research, business and investments in this field.
