Laboratory for Nano and Quantum Technologies
The Laboratory for Nano and Quantum Technologies (LNQ) is dedicated to fundamental and applied research, focusing on the synergies of nanotechnology and quantum science. We provide advanced micro and nanofabrication technologies to academic and industrial users, particularly in quantum technology and X-ray instrumentation. We develop quantum technologies for quantum computing and collaborate with Swiss scientists through the Quantum Hub.
We are excited to announce that our joint Sinergia Project: Sustainable Group-IV Active Photonics Research (SUGAR) has been approved for funding by the SNSF and will start in the spring of 2024. SUGAR is an interdisciplinary project that aims to develop a more sustainable photonics platform, based on group IV elements (Si, Ge, Sn). The proposal emphasizes sustainability throughout the entire device life-cycle, incorporating life cycle assessment (LCA) from extraction to end-of-life.
We are happy to announce that the new Cleanroom Name in the Park Innovaare will be PICO = Park Innovaare Cleanroom for Optics and innovation.
Next Step – we will work on a Logo (ideas welcome), together with PiA.
The winner of the naming contest: Helmut Schift
Researchers at ETH Zurich and PSI are participating in two quantum computing projects that are being financed by the US research funding agency IARPA.
