NCCR SPIN

2020 series

Home institution: University of Basel

Quantum computing is an emerging line of research which addresses one of the great scientific challenges of our time: to build a quantum computer that is capable of solving complex problems present-day computers cannot handle. The main objective of the National Centre of Competence in Research "Spin Qubits in Silicon" (NCCR SPIN) is to develop reliable, fast, compact and scalable spin qubits in silicon. In the medium term, the results should make it possible to use spin qubits for calculations a conventional computer would struggle to perform. In the long term, the NCCR SPIN wants to contribute to the creation of a universal quantum computer with more than a thousand logic qubits. To this end, NCCR SPIN brings together research teams from various disciplines such as quantum physics, materials science, engineering and computer science. The research work is conducted in three domains: Electron spin qubit, Hole-spin qubit and Architecture.

    NCCRs are financed through grants awarded by the SNSF, but also from other sources. The home institution involved in the NCCR also contributes a substantial amount of money. The available overall budget of the NCCR is further increased by monetary contributions from the project participants and third-party funds, which are generally invested by industrial companies.
