Electronic-photonic integrated quantum simulator platform

Project description

Moving quantum simulation from the realm of particle accelerators to desktop devices

Simulation, or the approximation of a real-life scenario, is critical to a myriad of areas, ranging from aviation and medicine to climate change and the stock market. Simulators create virtual 'experiments' that would be too costly, time-consuming, dangerous or even impossible to carry out in reality. In the world of quantum mechanics, classical physics cannot account for the nature and behaviour of matter and energy on the atomic and subatomic level. Currently, the only way to access quantum behaviours is with high-energy accelerators, often involving extreme temperatures. Creating a lab-accessible, silicon-based photonic-electronic compact quantum simulator that works at room temperature could revolutionise our understanding of the quantum world by fostering rapid and widespread innovation. That is exactly the focus of the research carried out within the scope of the EU-funded EPIQUS project.
