FET proactive initiative: Quantum Information Foundations and Technologies (Extract from Work programme 2009-2010 /Objective 2009.8.2 - Call 4)
New perspectives in ICT that exploit the quantum nature of information offer modes of computing and communicating that are not mere down-scaling of silicon CMOS based architectures,thus providing a "beyond Moore" route to circumvent the bottlenecks associated with the extrapolation of present-day information processing and technologies.
- Quantum information theory, algorithms and paradigms: new quantum algorithms, computation paradigms and communication protocols, quantum optimal control and quantum feedback methods.
- Entanglement-enabled quantum technologies exploiting several qubits for performing ICT tasks with unprecedented characteristics (e.g., quantum random numbers generators, improved atomic clocks, entanglement enhanced metrology, sensors and imaging) and engineering of entangled systems.
- Scalability of quantum processing systems: devices realizing quantum algorithms with up to ten qubits, demonstrating fault tolerant computing and error correction on small scale systems, and demonstrating quantum simulation of systems that cannot be simulated classically.
- Long distance quantum communication: technologies able to overcome the current distance limitation of quantum communication, e.g., by developing quantum repeaters realizing reversible interconversion of different types of qubits.
The research work should advance the state-of-the-art of QIPC and contribute to the transition of the field from upstream research to application-oriented research, e.g., through the increased reliability, scalability and interconnection of components. Interplay between theory and experiment should achieve complete and realistic schemes for coherent manipulation and high-precision performance.
Projects should address at least two of the above topics.
- Enable the scalability of quantum information technologies in the presence of environmental decoherence, hence facilitating their real-world deployment.
- Develop reliable technologies for the different components of quantum architectures.
- Identify new opportunities fostered through the transfer of entanglement technologies from laboratories to industries.
