Centre of Excellence in Quantum Technology, QTF

Organization profile

Profile Information

Quantum technologies will have a profound impact on our society. As a flagship of its field, the national Centre of Excellence – Quantum Technology Finland (QTF) – brings together scientific and technological excellence and cutting-edge research infrastructures, to harness quantum phenomena in solid-state-based quantum devices and applications. Around 100 researchers from Aalto University, University of Turku and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland work together for the joint goals of the centre.

QTF aims to introduce novel approaches for control of quantum coherence and dissipation, and to develop new and improved quantum circuits and hybrid architectures. Its research combines experimental, theoretical and applied expertise in all-superconducting and silicon-based devices, superconducting-metal interfaces, graphene and other 2D materials, nanowires and carbon nanotubes. New technological applications are expected in quantum sensors, simulators, communication and computing, with unprecedented scientific, economic and societal benefits.
