As part of our work, the Hub is focusing on quantum computing and simulation using cold neutral atoms. Neutral atoms, have a particular strength in that we can already produce them and manipulate a relatively large number of identical qubits. In addition to providing a platform for future digital quantum computing this gives opportunities for quantum advantage with near term quantum simulation.
In the first three years of the Hub we're focusing on applications of these, especially towards materials science. Our work comprises experimental programmes at the University of Cambridge and the University of Strathclyde, and complementary theory at the University of Oxford and the University of Strathclyde.
