The SIRTEQ project labeled Major Interest Domain (DIM) is funded by the Ile-de-France Region. SIRTEQ brings together the largest European concentration of academic teams in the field of quantum technologies. Its main objective is to promote an excellent academic research in the field of quantum technologies in Ile de France, taking into account the actual current societal challenges and the importance of the transfer of knowledge and technologies.
The SIRTEQ project is focused on Quantum Technologies. When the level of individual quantum objects is reached, quantum properties such as entanglement or superposition become evident experimentally. They then pave the way for revolutionary methods to process and manipulate information carried by such objects. The general objective of SIRTEQ is to develop new ways of processing information or making ultra-precise measurements, using new physical supports – quantum supports, rather than classical ones. It brings together computer scientists, physicists of condensed matter, cold atoms, optics and metrology in Ile-de-France iwho are paving the way for the second quantum revolution.
The DIM SIRTEQ will develop along four themes:
1- Quantum Sensors and metrology
2- Quantum simulations
3- Quantum communications
4- Quantum Computing
To these four vertical axes structuring the DIM are added two horizontal axes:
A. Enabling science and technology
B. Scientific innovations and training
