Research Project: Hybrid Architecture for Quantum Information using Rydberg Ensembles and Superconductors (HAIRS)

Tübingen and Durham are part of a consortium, co-ordinated by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (France) and including the Max Planck Society (Germany), University of Nottingham (UK) and Université Paris-Sud (France), which successfully bid for a 1.5 million euro research grant from the European Commission’s FP7-ICT programme.  The bid was developed following discussions at the first MNU Quantum Science workshop in Tübingen.  The project, which aims to to solve the long-standing problem of coupling quantum states in atoms to solid-state quantum devices, runs from February 2014 to January 2017.
