Quantum computers promise to perform certain computing tasks that are beyond the capabilities of classical computers: tasks such as prime factorization and decryption. Moreover, breakthroughs are to be expected in research fields such as quantum simulation in chemistry, condensed matter physics, and high-energy physics as well as in optimization problems and machine learning. Despite great progress over the last few years, quantum computing is still in its infancy, much like classical computer technology was in the 1950s.

The Helmholtz Association, with its application-oriented research strategy, has the critical mass to become a leader in European quantum computing. It will develop prototypes and use cases that will realize the advantages of quantum technology for the real world and create a community of quantum computing users to support the use of quantum computation and annealing technologies for scientific and industry-related research.

Basics and applications of quantum technologies and quantum computing

There is no either-or here, quanta can take on different states, and they can do so simultaneously. Physicists call this superposition. The realm of the quantum has its own logic and this is exactly where its enormous opportunities lie. Jülich wants to take advantage of them.
