(QuTech.nl) QuTech (a collaboration between TU Delft and TNO) and Fujitsu signed a collaboration agreement to combine efforts in a multi-year research project. The aim of the project is to develop the building blocks for a modular quantum computer based on diamond spin qubits. By joining forces, both parties seek to stay at the forefront of quantum technology.
QuTech is the co-producer with 3DR Holdings of IQT Europe taking place this week (October 26-30) online.
By bringing together QuTech’s expertise in diamond spin qubits and Fujitsu’s expertise in classical computer technology, both parties hope to accelerate the development of modular quantum computers. Tim Taminiau, Group Leader at QuTech and the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience: “This collaboration allows us to speed up our research on modular quantum computers with diamond-spin qubits, and keep us at the forefront of this important technology. Fujitsu’s expertise in classical computer technology will greatly contribute to our joint effort.” Ryoichi Ishihara of QuTech and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science: “I am excited by the opportunities created by this project and look forward to the collaboration with this esteemed partner.”
The CEO at Fujitsu Laboratories, Hirotaka Hara, is looking forward to the positive impact the collaboration will have on Fujitsu’s computing technology, with regard to solving societal problems: “We are very pleased to collaborate with QuTech, a leader in the field of qubits for quantum computers with advanced knowledge and innovative technology, for developing revolutionary computing technology. We anticipate that this collaboration will help Fujitsu leverage its computing technology to solve challenging issues confronting society.”
