The ETHZ-PSI Quantum Computing Hub is a research facility jointly operated by ETH Zürich and the Paul Scherrer Institut, bringing together the two leading technologies for quantum computing under one roof at a large-scale national laboratory.

It currently consists of two groups: Superconducting Circuit and Ion Trap Quantum Computation.

The hub builds on the extensive experience at the Quantum Devices Laboratory (QDev) and the Trapped Ion Quantum Information group (TIQI) at ETH Zürich and combines it with the broad expertise and resources available at PSI to serve our core mission:

  • Scaling up to larger scale systems of tens of qubits,
  • Advancing materials and control, and
  • Exploiting the synergies across technologies and the software stack.

The hub's goals a characterised by the pursuit of four central goals
