(PresseBox) - Partners from academia and industry, led by the University of Mainz, have started a collaborative research project with the ambitious goal to build a quantum computer, interface it with an existing supercomputer and also enable access to external users. Providing access to external parties is an important goal and a major step in bringing quantum computers out of the laboratory. This will stimulate applications and support the industry in finding solutions to certain complex problems, where quantum computers have a clear edge over classical computers.

The partners of this 12 Million Euro project are all experts in their respective fields. TOPTICA, a well-recognized international supplier of laser products for quantum technology, focuses on research concerning laser solutions for quantum computers within the framework of this project. This comprises laser systems as well as optical control units, which will control perfectly-timed laser pulses of precisely-defined frequency and duration for the quantum processor. Such laser solutions do not yet exist on the market. Building upon profound experience with other projects, TOPTICA strives to further increase its knowhow of laser solutions for quantum technology applications and quantum computers in particular.

The laser solutions are crucial for bringing quantum computers out of the laboratory. Stephan Ritter, Director for Quantum Technology Applications at TOPTICA Photonics AG, explains: ?The combination of high-quality laser systems and optical control units is absolutely essential for reliably controlling the quantum system and driving the quantum computing operations.? Technologically remarkable will be the size, as the laser solution will take no more space than a wardrobe, instead of a full laboratory.

This project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research under the program "Ion Quantum Processor ? with HPC connection" (13N15678).
