The four year project, named QLSI, will be coordinated by CEI-Leti with 18 additional organizations and will leverage previous research performed by some of the consortium members. It is part of the European Union’s Quantum Flagship program, a 10-year, R&D initiative launched in 2018.

 Goals of the project will be to:

  • Fabricate a 16-qubit quantum processor
  • Demonstrate single- and two-qubit gates, read-out and initialization with these devices with a greater than 99% fidelity in a lab environment
  • Demonstrate online, open access of an 8-qubit prototype processor through the Quantum Inspire open-access quantum cloud environment.
  • Document the requirements to scale up to large systems with greater than 1,000 qubits

The nineteen members of the consortium and their activities in the project include the following:

  • CEA – development and fabrication of spin qubits
  • TUD – demonstration of spin qubithttp://www.qutech.nl/
