Our goal is to realize a 50-qubit quantum computer based on ion traps by the end of 2025. This technology is currently considered one of the world’s most promising approaches for scalable quantum computers, as it allows operation with the lowest error rates.
For the construction of QVLS-Q1, the world-class expertise established in Lower Saxony is bundled with engineers and industry, thus encompassing the entire chain for the construction of a quantum computer. Bringing together all the necessary expertise under one roof – from nanotechnology to quantum algorithms or the production of ion trap chips – is a convincing unique selling point of the ambitious project even in a global comparison.
The state of Lower Saxony and the Volkswagen Foundation are supporting the QVLS-Q1 project with a total of 25 million euros. The aim is to use the partners’ potential for a development leap towards a quantum computer based on ion trap technology and simultaneously bundle the excellent research projects and competencies in Lower Saxony.
