Path to Stable Quantum Devices Receives European Research Council Grant

ERC grants consolidation to lowland science stars

Key points…

+  Imec’s Meckling has been awarded a Consolidator Grant for working out his project called “Notice”. The ground-breaking idea of this project is the research of novel oxides and experimental realization of topological interfaces to generate Majorana fermions that will lead to fault-tolerant qubits devices – building blocks of the next-generation quantum computers.

Clement Merckling is looking to open the path to ‘stable’ quantum devices.

+  These “Majorana qubits” are expected to be immune to decoherence – a phenomenon that induces the loss of quantum information.
