Quantum simulator of the future – EPIQUS

15/06/2020 EPIQUS, a project funded by the European Commission that aims to develop a new generation "quantum simulator" and coordinated by FBK

EPIQUS, acronym for Elecronic-photonic integrated quantum simulator platform, has the ambition to develop a new generation of quantum simulators, consisting of a chip-sized device, fully integrated, operating at room temperature and with scalable power, being able to support many parallel devices.

“What we want to achieve is extremely ambitious, – explains Mher Ghulinyan, researcher of the Bruno Kessler Foundation and project coordinator – the basic idea has not been explored yet and the execution and success of the project are based on multidisciplinary skills. These elements of complexity, absolute novelty and revolutionary perspectives for QT (Quantum Technologies) have led to a positive assessment by the European Commission, which with the FET scheme intends to finance high-risk projects but with very high impact potential“.
