Multidisciplinary research domain

Shaping the Dawn of the Quantum Age

Electrons that spin to the right and the left at the same time. Particles that change their states together, even though they are separated by enormous distances. Intriguing phenomena like these are completely commonplace in the world of quantum physics. Researchers at the TUM Garching campus are using them to build quantum computers, high-sensitivity sensors and the internet of the future.

New micrometer Quantum systems

Vibrating nanostrings

Eva Weig and her team are building mechanical quantum sensors large enough to be seen under an electron microscope. One day, they could become fundamental components of a new quantum technology.

Interview with quantum physicist Prof. Andreas Reiserer

Quantum internet: "The biggest problem is data loss"

Researchers around the world are working on a network which could connect quantum computers with one another over long distances. Andreas Reiserer, Professor of Quantum Networks at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), explains the challenges which have to be mastered and how atoms captured in crystals can help.

Quantum sensors make microscale NMR spectroscopy possible

A miniature magnetic resonance imager made of diamond

The development of tumors begins with miniscule changes within the body's cells; ion diffusion at the smallest scales is decisive in the performance of batteries. Until now the resolution of conventional imaging methods has not been high enough to represent these processes in detail. A research team led by the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed diamond quantum sensors which can be used to improve resolution in magnetic imaging.

Interview with Prof. Robert Wille on quantum computing software

“Munich is becoming a hotspot for quantum computing software”

Most of us use software applications on a daily basis, for example when writing emails or surfing the internet. But how will future programs look like when new technologies such as quantum computers arrive on the scene? Prof. Robert Wille and his team are already developing the software of tomorrow today. In October, they are bringing the who’s who of the software community together – for a forum to exchange ideas. In this interview, he explains what the forum is all about and what makes Munich such a unique research location.

Post-quantum cryptography

Quantum-safe data encryption

Due to the special way they function, quantum computers will be capable of breaking current encryption methods. A competition initiated by the US federal agency NIST aims to change this. It is seeking algorithms that will successfully resist cyber attacks from quantum computers. However, it has become evident that it will be far from simple to develop suitable cryptographic schemes. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have submitted two proposals to the NIST competition. They feel optimistic about their results.

Continuing education for experts and executives at the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning

Understanding the potentials of quantum technologies for industry

Quantum technologies represent a robustly growing scientific field of research with enormous application potentials in industry. The current challenge is transferring knowledge and technological expertise from university laboratories and research institutes to the business sector in an application-oriented form. In order to help close this gap, the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning has launched the overview course "Quantum Technologies".
