Quantum Engineering in Grenoble
The strengths of the Grenoble laboratories are recognized worldwide in several domains of condensed matter and nanosciences, such as magnetism, low temperature physics and instrumentation, superconducting materials and hybrid devices, nanostructures of semiconductors with specific properties and photonics, theory with strong links with the experimental groups. The strengths of the environment are multiple:
- A long, efficient “tradition of innovation” with industry and start-up companies, and 9% of the population in research. Particularly relevant is the presence of the R&D labs of Minatec, with advanced silicon-based nanotechnology at the forefront.
- A major University, with one of the best international ranking amongst French universities, particularly recognized in hard sciences and engineering.
- International environment with European large facilities (ESRF, ILL, High Field)
Experimentalists and theorists benefit from several joint actions, such as two weekly seminars on the theory in condensed matter and another one on quantum nanoelectronics, regular workshops, and various visiting scientist programs that allow us to attract worldwide leading scientists for extended collaborative stays in Grenoble.
Our research field covers the most advanced scientific domains relevant for quantum engineering:
- Spin physics
- Superconducting quantum circuits
Our current activity in these fields is intense and diverse, but the actors have identified specific challenges where they can be particularly efficient by enhancing their collaboration within LANEF and with the neighboring R&D labs. It is the purpose of this short document to describe these challenges and provide the main references, and contacts who will transmit your questions to the relevant people.
The hereafter document presents the pre-cited scientific domain :
In early 2017, quantum engineering has been awarded by a CDP project of Grenoble Alpes University, and a Marie Slodowska-Curie project from European Union to support 25 PhD scholarships (starting 2017 or 2018) in quantum technologies within a pluridisciplinary framework involving computer scientists, mathematicians, sociologists, philosophers, and industrialists.
