National Centre of Competence in Research
'Quantum Science and Technology'
Please go to
The polyproject QSIT at ETH Zürich was founded in 2004 as a
center for quantum science and technology and involves 14 research
groups from 4 departments within ETH Zürich and 3 external research
groups from other Swiss institutions. The goal of the initiative is to
foster research on quantum hard- and software for future applications
in quantum information storage, processing, computing, and
cryptography. The complementary expertise of the groups involved forms
the backbone for a successful endeavor and makes this center unique in
Switzerland, if not on an international level. Members of QSIT perform
experiments with cold atoms, Rydberg atoms, molecules, artificial
atoms, superconducting structures, photons, and investigate spin-based
and superconductivity-based quantum devices theoretically. Employing
different experimental and theoretical techniques to achieve similar
goals helps QSIT’s members to develop a broad knowledge base in quantum
information science within Switzerland. QSIT’s leaders are convinced
that the field of quantum physics, information, and technology will
turn into a key application area in the future and suggest to expand
QSIT’s activity to a center.
"... it seems that the laws of physics present no barriers to reducing the size of computers until bits are the size of atoms and quantum behavior holds dominant sway."
