QSolid Researcher Dr Felix Lüpke Receives Grant From German Research Foundation (DFG)
QSolid is pleased to announce that a member of its own ranks has been accepted into the Emmy Noether Programme of the German Research Foundation (DFG). Dr Felix Lüpke from the Peter Grünberg Institute, Quantum Nanoscience (PGI-3), at Forschungszentrum Jülich was able to convince the expert jury with his research project "Manipulating 2D superconductivity and Majorana states on the nanoscale", for which he will now receive six years of funding with the subsequent prospect of a university professorship.
The goal of the Emmy Noether group led by Dr Lüpke is to realise novel superconductors in layer stacks that promise potential applications in quantum computing. In QSolid, Felix Lüpke is working on new materials to improve qubit performance as part of Work Package 1, QPU Critical Path. We congratulate Dr Felix Lüpke and wish him much success for his research project and further work in QSolid!
