The Swiss Federal Councilor Parmelin announced the launching of 6 new National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR), including the NCCR "Spin" in which our group is involved.
Under the leadership of Prof. Richard Warburton, University of Basel, the NCCR "SPIN" aims to make a major contribution to the development of quantum computers and create the basis for a new information-processing technology. The objective is to develop small, fast, scalable silicon-based qubits. It will also generate important findings on software and algorithm development, error correction and the architecture of future quantum computers.
The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) supports the NCCR "SPIN" with CHF 17 million in the first funding phase from 2020 to 2023.
