The Walther-Meißner-Institute for Low Temperature Research (WMI) is a research institute of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BAdW). It conducts fundamental and applied research in the field of low and ultra-low temperature physics with special focus on quantum systems, quantum computing, superconductivity and correlated electron systems, as well as magnetism and spintronics. It also develops low and ultra-low temperature methods, measurement techniques for characterizing quantum systems and matter at extreme conditions, as well as method for the growth of single crystals and thin film heterostuctures of quantum matter. Currently it is coordinating German efforts to realize superconducting quantum computing systems within the projects GeQCoS and MUNIQC-SC funded by the BMBF and the MQV SQQC project funded by the State of Bavaria.
Stefan Filipp heads the quantum computing team at the Walther-Meissner-Institute. The group focuses on the simulation and experimental realization of superconducting qubit devices for quantum neural networks and high-connectivity quantum processors.
