Building blocks for error correction on Rydberg quantum processors

Teaming up across Germany

We are part of the consortium Muni-QC-Atoms, coordinated by the Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum Optics in Munich. The project combines the long-standing expertise of the consortium’s research members in the field of ultracold atom control with the expertise of industrial partners in the fields of photonics and laser development. The goal of the alliance is the joint development of a quantum processor based on neutral atoms with up to 400 qubits encoded in the Strontium level structure.

Our contribution in Muni-QC

Fault-tolerant computing on future quantum computers requires the implementation of quanutm error correction. Quantum error correction needs both measurements on entangled auxiliary qubits and active control. Within the Muni-QC collaboration, we address these challenges for the neutral atom platform and investigate fundamental concepts and first steps towards the implementation of quanutm error correction exploiting the rich level structure of Strontium.


Muni-QC-Atoms is fundend by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
