Quantum Interconnects

A working quantum computer requires controllable interactions between the qubits to perform logic operations, or to move information across the processor. Most “natural” interactions, however, operate only at very short distances (tens of nanometres). The Quantum Interconnects Work Package will develop novel methods to extend the range of inter-qubit coupling far beyond that of naturally occurring interactions. A key deliverable is the coherent coupling of spin qubits to microwave or optical photons.
