The quantum race is in full swing. Companies and research institutes worldwide are working diligently on prototypes of quantum computers – devices that calculate in a fundamentally different way and that would relegate our current ‘classic’ computers to ordinary abacus. QuTech
, a partnership between TU Delft
, is at the forefront of that race.
Various ‘routes’ are being followed at the Delft research institute to create a truly working quantum computer. In addition, research is also being conducted into a real quantum internet. During this excursion, the participants will get an exclusive insight into this quantum lab. Researchers from QuTech will explain the latest developments in the development of the quantum computer and the quantum internet. It will be a unique opportunity to follow the quantum race from the first line.
The excursion is intended for science journalists who are already somewhat at home in quantum technology. A certain basic knowledge, for example of the meaning of the concept of a qubit, is therefore recommended.
