Photonic Quantum Computing (PhoQC): The aim is to research the fundamentals for the realization of photonic quantum computers. For this purpose, an internationally leading research center is to be created at the University of Paderborn in perspective, in which the fields of physics, mathematics, engineering sciences, computer science and electrical engineering will be integrated.
With the Institute for Photonic Quantum Systems (PhoQS), the University of Paderborn wants to establish an international research center in the field of photonic quantum technologies. The aim is to develop new research approaches both in technology development for photon-based quantum applications and in theoretical as well as experimental concept finding. The ultimate focus is on the understanding and control of photonic quantum simulators and quantum computers.
