The OT4Q project

Optical technologies for quantum computation

The ML4Q collaboration is a recently established network between the universities of Aachen, Cologne, and Bonn, as well as the FZ Jülich. The acronym "ML4Q" means Light and Matter for Quantum Communication, so that's what this project is about: the development of concepts and devices for future quantum computing.

Within this Cluster of Excellence, we will develop optical technologies required for large-area communication, for example wavelength conversion at the single-photon level, which is required to link platforms operating at different wavelengths.

Also, we investigate the element Zinc as candidate for very robust and compact optical clocks, which might then be used for network synchronization.
