Computer quantistico fotonico europeo

EPIQUE, the European Photonic Quantum Computer Project

The 10-million-euro European project is led by Sapienza University of Rome with 18 partners, including the National Research Council and the University of Florence

Leading the way for a European quantum computer based on photons, the quanta of light: this is the challenge of EPIQUE, the research project funded with 10,340,000 euros by the European Commission and carried out by 18 partners from 12 countries and led by Sapienza University of Rome, which kicks off today.

Quantum computers are one of the most promising technologies of the future, machines potentially capable of solving problems impossible even for the most powerful supercomputers, but these devices are at the prototype stage and there are still many possible ways for development.

Among the most promising of these is light-based computing: the use of photons in the role of qubits. EPIQUE - European Photonic Quantum Computer, a project that aims to be a trailblazer in a field with broad margins for development, was created precisely to study in depth the potential offered by the development of photonic quantum computing platforms.

The partners of EPIQUE are:

  • Sapienza University of Rome (Uniroma1) Italy
  • National Research Council (CNR) Italy
  • University of Florence (Unifi) Italy
  • Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) France
  • Commissariat a l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (CEA) France
