Overview of Quantum Technology Research

Quantum computing is a revolutionary information processing paradigm that harnesses quantum mechanics to tackle complex problems beyond classical computers’ reach. At its core, it manipulates information in fundamentally distinct ways. Entanglement is key in quantum computing, enabling qubits to be correlated regardless of physical separation. This leads to potent quantum algorithms, solving problems like large number factorization and quantum system simulation far more efficiently than classical methods.

Superconducting Josephson junctions give rise to macroscopic coherent states, offering unique advantages for the exploration of quantum technologies, including qubits, quantum sensing, and quantum communications. Our current research is dedicated to exploring the entangled states between qubits and nanomechanics. Imagine these states taking flight, much like ‘Sonogong,’ and traversing the air. This concept paves the way for the development of quantum networks employing flying qubits. Our research initiatives propose quantum connections through nanomechanical systems and the precise control of qubits via measurement techniques. Beyond our work on NEMS qubits, our research portfolio encompasses diverse topics, including topological materials, quantum optics, magnonics, and spintronics.
