PASQuanS2 will continue exploring industrial applications and mapping real-life problems while establishing a sustainable ecosystem of end-users and open quantum simulation platforms. Addressing these challenges calls for a concerted effort between experimentalists and theorists from the academic world and engineers from industrial partners, including hardware and software technologists working together with prospective end-users- Project Coordinator Prof. Immanuel Bloch, Director at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics and Chair at LMU Munich
Quantum technologies have evolved rapidly over the past years producing numerous substantial scientific breakthroughs. One of the most promising fields is the simulation of many-body quantum systems, such as quantum materials, molecules for drug research and the fundamental constituents of matter in extreme conditions. These problems can be addressed by dedicated quantum computers, known as quantum simulators.
As different platforms become more mature in terms of scalability, stability and programmability, quantum simulation is moving from being a means for physicists to answer particular scientific questions towards a powerful tool to help address real-world problems and provide practical applications for industry. For instance, quantum simulators can potentially be used to develop new materials, analyse chemical processes, and solve optimisation problems in the future.
