HTX delegation visits WMI

WMI director Rudolf Gross welcomed a delegation of HTX Singapore headed by Mr. CHEW Hock Yong, chairman of HTX and Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Home Affairs, and informed it about quantum-related research activities. HTX is a Science and Technology Agency that brings together science and engineering capabilities across the various Home Team Departments of Singapore. As security issues are a key focus area of HTX, the delegation was particularly impressed by the WMI activities on quantum microwave communication.

We are happy our new paper "Effective nonlocal parity-dependent couplings in qubit chains" has been published in PRResearch: https://journals.aps.org/prresearch/pdf/10.1103/PhysRevResearch.4.033166.
We show how to generate efficient multi-qubit gates by simultaneously coupling qubits on a chain and study applications in the simulation of electrons and in quantum error corrections.

WMI gets funding for MQV Lighthouse Projects

Basic research projects in quantum science and technology are essential to keep Bavaria's leading role in this field. Therefore, the Free State of Bavaria provides funding for five interdisciplinary Lighthouse Projects with a total budget of about 17 million euros as part of the Munich Quantum Valley (MQV). The projects involve groups of BAdW, MPG and several universities, thereby particularly fostering cross-university collaborations within Bavaria. "We are very happy that WMI can contribute to the ambitious projects NeQuS and IQSense", WMI director Rudolf Gross says, who was strongly supporting the idea of basic research oriented Lighthouse Projects in the application phase of MQV.
