Welcome Matthias Dietl

Matthias did his Masters in Regensburg in the group of Prof. Schüller, and is now joining the Cryo team as PhD student. He will work both in Innsbruck and in Villach with Infineon on the development of novel 2D surface traps.

Welcome James Bate

James did his MPhys at Oxford University where he was investigating the Fermi surface topology of quasi-2D iron-based superconductors.


He will be joining Ben Lanyon's group as a PhD student where he will be researching applications for quantum networks. 

Welcome Matthias Bock

Matthias did his PhD at Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany, where he worked on polarization-preserving quantum frequency conversion as telecom interface for quantum networks based on single trapped ions and neutral atoms.

In Innsbruck, Matthias will join the 2D crystal team aiming at variational quantum simulation of spin models in two-dimensional geometries.

New method pre­vents quan­tum computers from cra­shing

Quantum information is fragile, which is why quantum computers must be able to correct errors. But what if whole qubits are lost? Researchers at the University of Innsbruck, in collaboration with RWTH Aachen University and University of Bologna, are now presenting a method in the journal Nature that allows quantum computers to keep going even if they lose some qubits along the way.
