ETH Zurich and PSI are jointly opening a Quantum Computing Hub. An interview with Gabriel Aeppli and Christian Rüegg about the new research centre.
ETH Zurich and the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI are opening a joint centre for the development of quantum computers. The aim is to advance the realisation of quantum computers based on both ion traps and superconducting devices.
At high pressure, liquid water and water vapour merge together – the phase boundary disappears. Researchers have now discovered a similar behaviour in a quantum magnet.
PSI researchers have shown how faster and better defined quantum bits can be created. The central elements are magnetic atoms from the class of so-called rare-earth metals, selectively implanted into the crystal lattice of a material.
