Youth Talent Excellence Program—Quantum Computing Innovation Workshop (Preparatory)

Date:2021-06-21 Visitcount : 55

The first phase of the workshop will focus on the design and preparation of high-level superconducting quantum computing chips, the R&D of high-precision quantum measurement and control systems, and the research on quantum computing and quantum simulation applications. The workshop aims to develop high-level superconducting quantum chip measurement and control systems and explore their potential application value in its first phase. The first phase includes designing and preparing superconducting quantum chips with specific computing and simulation capabilities, building extremely low-temperature multi-bit quantum chip characterization and measurement and control systems, developing high-precision quantum measurement and control software and hardware systems, promoting the application of quantum chips in quantum computing and quantum simulation, and exploring and promoting the integration of quantum chips and other disciplines. The workshop is striving to be a world-class research platform for quantum science and technology.
