SFB Consortium

SFB BeyondC consortium will apply its theoretical and experimental expertise to develop and exploit new methods and tools to describe, characterize, validate, and manipulate quantum systems in order to achieve the experimental regime of quantum systems for quantum superiority, the ability of quantum computing devices to solve problems that their classical counterparts cannot. 

The close collaboration of theory and experiment as well as the combination of three implementation platforms (photons, ion traps and superconducting circuits) is key to the success of this research endeavor.
