Under the first project, a four-year, $2.67 million grant is aimed at the next generation of modular quantum computing systems. Researchers at Pittsburgh and Yale have separately developed methods to link qubits over long ranges. This project aims to explore how best to bring these together using modular quantum computing systems both universities have developed.
The intention is to develop new hardware approaches to designing next-generation powerful superconducting quantum computers with improved error detection that can solve problems consistently and accurately.
The second $3.03 million grant is for several four-year projects related to both the physics and the fabrication of parametric amplifiers, or “paramps”, which are essential components of quantum computers.
Paramps need large, instantaneous bandwidths and the ability
