JARA-Institute Quantum Information (PGI-11)

Our institute pursues a diverse set of topics that further our theoretical understanding of electronic systems and devices at nano- and atomic scales, and the application of these small quantum systems to new forms of information processing.

Institute Heads: Prof. Dr. David DiVincenzo, Prof. Dr. Hendrik Bluhm

New method prevents quantum computers crash

Quantum information is fragile, which is why quantum computers must also be able to correct errors. But what if whole qubits are lost? Researchers at Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University, in collaboration with Universities of Innsbruck and Bologna, are presenting a method in the journal Nature that allows quantum computers to keep going even if they lose some qubits along the way.


Tag des PGI 2020 - “Opportunities Through Change” and the annual Institute Assembly

Following on from last year’s very successful first “PGI-Tag”, this year’s Assembly will again be accompanied by entertaining and informative events. Due to the pandemic, this event mainly has to take place virtually. We are organising an online event from the Auditorium of the Central Library, which will enable everyone to participate and hopefully once more bring together the many different areas of the institute.
