circuit Quantum Magneto-Mechanics : interfacing single molecular spins with nanomechanical resonators in the quantum regime.

Project description

Controlling and reading out molecular spins for scalable quantum computing

Conventional computers represent, process and store information as combinations of zeros and ones. Transistors are the physical method of storage of these 'bits' of information since transistors are like switches with an 'on' or 'off' state. Qubits, or quantum bits, rely on quantum states of a 2-level quantum system. Spins in molecules have discrete energy levels, and their associated quantum states can be used to encode qubits. Further, molecules are larger and more versatile than atoms, opening the door to scalability. We need the ability for control and readout on fast time scales. The EU-funded cQMM project will tackle this challenging task with the help of nanomechanical resonators.
