  • Maris Ozols (ILLC-CWI) and Florian Schreck (IoP) receive NGF Quantum Technology programme award

    While quantum computers offer unprecedented opportunities for speeding up certain types of computations, their development remains very challenging. Maris Ozols (ILLC-CWI) and Florian Schreck (UvA-IoP) propose to take advantage of existing but unused internal structures of quantum systems, such as individual atoms, for quantum computation and studies of fundamental theories of Nature. They will develop new algorithms to achieve this and test them with one of the leading platforms for quantum computing, an array of neutral atoms cooled to temperatures close to absolute zero.
