Universität Ulm

Ulm University (UUlm), ranked among the best young universities worldwide, has a distinct teaching and research profile with a focus on natural, medical and life sciences, engineering, economy and computer science. It follows the mission of “Crossing Borders” to foster inter- and transdisciplinary research with main research areas in “Energy conversion and storage”, “Quantum technologies”, “Interdisciplinary trauma research”, “Molecular mechanisms of aging”, and “Data science”. As part of the Science City, UUlm is embedded in an excellent ecosystem for research and development with strong ties to externally funded institutions (DLR, Helmholtz), R&D of high-tech companies, and an active Startup environment. The Institute for Complex Quantum Systems (ICQ) is part of the Ulm-Stuttgart Center for Integrated Quantum Science and Technology IQST, the Quantum Technology Network BW QT.BW, and the Competence Center for Quantum Computing BW.

Role within QSolid

The ICQ has a long-standing expertise in theoretically describing, modelling, and simulating the dynamics of open quantum systems, in particular, charge and energy transfer in superconducting devices. Within QSolid our role is to develop in collaboration with experimentalists appropriate models for noise sources in single and multi-qubit architecures, to simulate realistic implementations in various modes of operation, and to propose ways to mitigate the impact of noise.

Our vision for QSolid

The whole is more than the sum of its parts.
