But the step from current qubit demonstrators to full-fledged quantum computers is still a huge one. No one today can say which qubit platform is best suited to constructing a quantum computer. There is still room for radical improvement resulting from developments in the exploration of quantum phenomena in materials and systems.
The Helmholtz Association intends to develop tailored materials and quantum systems. One important goal is to research the basics of quantum systems at the atomic and molecular levels and to construct quantum mechanical characteristics with atomic precision.
