Exotic superconducting CIrcuits to Probe and protect quantum States of light and mattEr

Project description

A new type of qubit for less resource-intensive quantum information protection

Quantum systems can exist in fragile states that are ultimately wiped out by interactions with the environment. Protecting such states is essential for the future of quantum computing. While quantum error correction does offer a solution, it requires vast resources. The EU-funded ECLIPSE project intends to tackle this problem by protecting quantum information in a new type of qubit with two crucial specificities. Firstly, encoding will take place in a single superconducting circuit resonator whose infinite dimensional Hilbert space can replace large registers of physical qubits. Secondly, this qubit will be radio-frequency-powered, continuously exchanging photons with a reservoir. The circuits developed will manipulate quantum states of light. This work could advance the protection of quantum information in future quantum systems.
