Scalable quantum computing based on superconductor bound states
The EU-funded AndQC project aims to lay the foundations of a radically new solid-state platform for scalable quantum computing based on Andreev qubits. This platform utilises the single spin and charge trapped in discrete superconducting quasiparticle levels (Andreev levels) in weak links between superconductors. The flexibility and potential scalability of the proposed solid-state platform will hinge on the use of high-quality semiconductor nanowires and planar heterostructures along with clean superconductor leads. The work spans from theoretical device modelling and materials science to quantum transport and quantum bit measurements, and these diverse aspects will be covered by the broad range of competences in the consortium.
