From July 30th to August 3rd, 2018, Russia`s first international conference devoted to quantum superconducting processors, which are vital for quantum computers—"superweapons" in the world of information technology—was held in Moscow.
Physicists from the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Superconducting Metamaterials and two Institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences have created the world`s highest quality signal booster for quantum computers. The device can also be used in radio telescopes and other devices that work with super-weak radio emission.
An international team of quantum physicists have learned how to simulate processes which can help to decipher the mechanisms of photosynthesis. By creating a system based only on a single superconducting qubit at almost absolute zero temperature, scientists have managed to propel the quantum mechanical modeling of natural processes to a new level. The research article on the results was published in NatureCommunications.
NUST MISIS and the Russian Quantum Center (RQC) have announced the launch of a joint science education project — the NUST MISIS Quantum Center. The project’s blueprint calls for scientists from both NUST MISIS and the RQC to implement joint programs.
A group of NUST MISIS students leading by Dr. Alexey Basharin, an Associate Researcher from the NUST MISIS Laboratory of Superconducting metamaterials, has created the first compact anechoic chamber for the study of metamaterials. This chamber is currently unique. It can not only carry out measurements with high precision, but also is significantly cheaper than the industrial counterparts.
Scientists from leading universities and scientific centers actually created the first in Russia superconducting qubit necessary for the quantum computer creation. A group of researchers led by Alexey Ustinov (NUST МISIS, Russian Quantum Center), Oleg Astafiev (MIPT) and Valery Ryazanov (Institute of Solid State Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences) worked on this project. Alexey Ustinov shared his comments on this outstanding invention.
