Italian company SeeQC.EU is collaborating with the University of Naples to establish R&D laboratories at the Monte Sant’Angelo campus, including a cryogenic test lab.
Work conducted at the facility includes the research, development and commercialisation of superconducting quantum technologies.
The cryogenic test and evaluation lab is equipped with helium immersion probes, test and measurement equipment for evaluation of low-noise, high-speed and high-sensitivity superconducting circuits suitable for integration with quantum devices for quantum information processing systems.
It features test stations with oscilloscopes, signal generators, network and spectrum analysers, and low-noise current sources for complete characterisation of superconductor integrated circuits.
“European universities, companies and research teams have invested significant resources in quantum information sciences and technologies during the past several years and our new R&D labs will play a crucial role in accelerating this research and innovation,” said Oleg Mukhanov, SeeQC.EU Managing Director. “The R&D labs provide a path to future breakthrough quantum technologies and innovative products.”
This view is supported and resonates well with quantum technology leaders including Profesoor Giampiero Pepe of University of Naples Federico II and CNR-SPIN Naples Research Director, “Our relationship with SeeQC.EU is an example of the productive relationships being developed with quantum technology industry partners to ensure scalable quantum information processing platforms will be a part of the near-future commercial marketplace.”
SeeQC.EU is also focused on the development of superconductor classical circuit components for integration within cryogenic hybrid quantum-classical processing systems.
One of the near-term objectives is the development of programmable cryogenic qubit controllers that include superconducting spintronic memory—a relatively new brand of dense, very fast, and energy-efficient memory.
SeeQC.EU is working to deliver the performance and scalability needed for the rapidly increasing quantum information processing market.
