Center for Quantum Devices

The research in the Center for Quantum Electronics is to create coupling between two vastly different worlds - classical solid state physics and atomic quantum physics.

The aim is to develop future quantum electronics by exploring the interaction between advanced materials and the quantum effects in nano-electronic components consisting of solids. There can be no semiconducting nanowires, carbon nanotubes and superconducting systems.

The experiments are both at developing nano-electronics, consisting of these materials and develop new measurement techniques. The experiments carried out at ultra low temperatures close to absolute zero, which is minus 273 degrees C.

The reduction of modern electronics, which means that on one chip can be billions of transistors, has a quantum-parallel, where quantum transistors interact and become entangled (entangled) for use in computer programming.

Once entanglement has been brought under control and becomes a resource that has the technological gains the potential to revolutionize communication, information processing, and simulation of physical quantum systems, ranging from new superconducting materials for biomolecules.

The center will also cover the research into the quantum of systems based on the current, ie electrons in the quantum instead of, based on the photons. In the future, the two fields - Quantum electronics and quantum optics, developed interdisciplinary.

The Center for Quantum Electronics is created in collaboration with the experimental research group Quantum Nanoelectronics and the Condenced Matter Theory Group at the Niels Bohr Institute.
