PASQuanS (Programmable Atomic Large-Scale Quantum Simulation) will advance quantum simulator technologies. It builds on the achievements of the most advanced quantum simulation platforms to date, based on atoms and ions. Developing quantum simulators is an outstanding challenge in science and technology, which brings together fundamental science and industry. Those two players were not firmly connected before. New ideas and applications are expected to emerge from a close dialogue as it will be realized within PASQUANS.
The PASQuanS project consortium unites five experimental groups with complementary methods to achieve the technological goals, connected with six theoretical teams focusing on certification, control techniques and applications of the programmable platforms, and five industrial partners in charge of the key developments of enabling technologies and possible commercial spin-offs of the project. Possible end-users of these simulators, major industrial actors, are tightly associated to help identifying and implementing key applications.
Quantum Simulation aims at addressing questions in fundamental science, materials development, quantum chemistry and real-world problems of high importance in industry. PASQUANS will develop the next generation of Quantum Simulation platforms for such applications. By scaling up the programmable platforms from 20 towards more than 1000 atoms or ions, by improving control methods and making these simulators fully programmable, the goal of PASQuanS is to push these already well-advanced platforms far beyond the state-of-the-art.
The PASQuanS project is funded by the European Commission in the framework of the Flagship on Quantum Technologies with 10 million Euros.
Quantum Simulation is one of the Quantum Technologies with the potential to enable groundbreaking new approaches to long-standing problems. Research towards these goals as done within PASQUANS will assure the required know-how and the availability of key enabling technologies in Europe.
