NeQST — NExt level Quantum information processing for Science and Technology
Period: 01.11.2022 – 31.10. 2025
The vision of NeQST is to leverage recent advances in the control of dd-level quantum systems, qudits, in order to generate foundational breakthroughs throughout the full value chain of quantum computing. These include an experimentally tested qudit platform based on trapped ions, validated automated design tools, tailored certification methods, and demonstrated feasibility of practical applications. We aim at two use cases, of large interest for academia and industry, respectively, namely quantum simulation of lattice gauge theories and quantum optimization for the energy domain, in particular the optimization of the charging schedule of electrovehicles.
