The Quantum Device Lab is engaged in a number of individual and collaborative projects funded by the European Commission and the Swiss National Science foundation. An overview of these projects is presented on this webpage.

Ongoing Projects

Rydberg Quantum Simulators (RYSQ)

EU, Horizon 2020
Quantum Simulators provide new levels of understanding of equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium properties of many-body quantum systems, one of the most challenging problems in physics. The main objective of the RYSQ proposal is to use Rydberg atoms for quantum simulations, because their outstanding versatility will allow us to perform a great variety of useful quantum simulations, by exploiting different aspects of the same experimental and theoretical tools.

NCCR QSIT, Subproject Hybrid quantum systems using microwave frequency on-chip resonators as a coupling bus

Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), NCCR
We combine the expertise of different research groups to explore novel hybrid quantum systems in joint interdisciplinary projects. One major goal is to combine the long coherence times available in microscopic quantum systems with the strong interactions and high level of integration available in solid-state systems to explore new approaches to quantum information processing.

Exploring Geometric Effects and Geometric Gates with Superconducting Circuits

Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF)
The intimate relation between geometry and quantum mechanics is exemplified best by the concept of the geometric phase, a quantity acquired during the evolution of a system which is purely defined by the path of the system state in Hilbert space.

Superconducting Quantum Networks (SuperQuNet)

ERC Advanced Grant
Today superconducting electronic circuits are one of the prime physical systems to explore both foundations and technological applications of quantum mechanics. The concept of processing information more efficiently using quantum mechanics has stimulated enormous progress in control and measurement of quantum electronic circuits

Completed Projects

Ultrafast Instrument for Quantum Control and Measurement

Comission for Technology and Innovation CTI
The ETH Zurich Quantum Device Lab collaborates with Zurich Instruments and ZAHW to develop a novel commercial instrument for controlling and measuring quantum electronic circuits. The project is funded by the Comission for Technology and Innovation CTI. The Instrument developed under this collaboration will become available to first customers in summer 2016. More information can be found here.
