Quantum Flagship Strategic Advisory Board established

Published on April 2nd, 2019

The Strategic Advisory Board (SAB) for the Quantum Flagship has been officially announced by the European Commission. The Strategic Advisory Board provides advice for strategic decision-making to the Quantum Technology (QT) the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagship, with a long-term impact across the whole initiative. The group will be in charge of preparing and updating the Strategic Research Agenda whilst monitoring the Flagship’s progress in research, and will report regularly to the FET Board of Funders. SAB members are appointed for a two-year period, each of whom will meet two to four times per year and act upon request of the Chairperson.

  • Plug and play continuous variable quantum key distribution for metropolitan networks

    The study entitled "Plug and play continuous variable quantum key distribution for metropolitan networks", published by partners of the CiViQ in Optics Express, has been highlighted as an Editor's Pick. Editor's Picks serve to highlight articles with excellent scientific quality and are representative of the work taking place in a specific field.

  • Qombs makes major advances in high performance quantum cascade laser frequency combs

    QOMBS project partner Alpes Lasers has demonstrated high-performance quantum cascade laser frequency combs at λ ∼ 6 μm for the first time. This new wavelength is important because it corresponds to the amide I vibration band of proteins, opening up numerous new biological and medical applications.

  • New software brings quantum network design to users around the world

    NetSquid, a specialized simulator for quantum networks has been made freely available for non-commercial users. In development by QuTech since 2017, the software is the first of its kind to model timing effects using discrete events. NetSquid allows researchers around the world to accurately predict the performance of quantum networks and modular quantum computing systems. Such simulations are essential to design scalable quantum systems and exploit them for radically new types of computation and communication technologies.
