The infrastructure is oriented to ensure quick testing cycles. In this way, findings can be realised weeks earlier, for example how tiny energy carriers behave.
The knowledge which the researchers will gain in cooperation with the University of Innsbruck and Joanneum Research in Graz, should serve as the basis for the quantum computer of the future. Research is currently being conducted on quantum computers, from America to China. In the future they should be capable of implementing highly complex calculation tasks much faster than previous systems.
For this purpose, charged atoms must be isolated, specially cooled and manipulated with laser waves using an ultra-high vacuum. Philipp Schindler, experimental physicist at the University of Innsbruck, says, "We have to do quite a lot in the laboratories to ensure that the quantum state exists for a relatively long time, namely one or two seconds." According to Infineon Austria CEO Sabine Herlitschka, an ultra-high vacuum and excellent laser systems are needed. The Infineon facility in Villach, Carinthia is working on producing these quantum computers. The first quantum computer could be available on the market in four years.
