SQUARE has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme within the Flagship on Quantum Technologies in the basic science axis. It is coordinated by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (David Hunger).
SQUARE aims at establishing individually addressable rare earth ions as a fundamental building block of a quantum computer, and to overcome the main roadblocks on the way towards scalable quantum hardware. The central photonic elements that enable efficient single ion addressing will be engineered into deployable technologies.
More details about the goals and the consortium wan be found on the official website of the project: Square KIT
