LOEWE priority project SMolBits
The project SMolBits ("Scalable Molecular Quantum Bits") is a new collaborative priority project in the frame of the state initiative for the development of scientific and economic excellence (LOEWE). The project, coordinated by Prof. Dr. Johann Peter Reithmaier, has started in January 2019 at the University of Kassel and will be funded for 4 years with about 4.4 Mio €. Seven CINSaT members (T. Baumert, M. Benyoucef, C. Koch, R. Pietschnig, J.P. Reithmaier, K. Singer, B. Witzigmann) from three disciplines (chemistry, physics and electrical engineering) are participating.
The main goal is the development of a new nano technology platform for the realization of strongly interacting quantum systems based on molecular quantum bits integrated on a nano photonic chip. A brief introduction to the project goals are given in a public overview article.
