IQubits research consists of synergistic efforts across a wide range of topics spanning quantum physics, materials science and engineering, device physics, numerical modelling, nanofabrication, manufacturing, electrical and electronic engineering, instrumentation and measurement science. The Consortium is characterized by a unique combination of advanced competencies and facilities for atomistic numerical algorithm development, nanofabrication, semiconductor device modeling and fabrication, mm-wave circuit design, mm-wave transistor and circuit modelling and experimental characterization, as well as access to FDSOI CMOS manufacturing through world leading foundries, such as GlobalFoundries (GF) and STMicroelectronics (ST).
Such a unique cross- and inter-disciplinary approach is key to carrying out groundbreaking research and innovation, creating new knowledge in high-T qubits and qubit ICs for immediate adoption in advanced node production CMOS technology. University of Toronto as a key partner of the Consortium allows also a synergic cooperation between the EU H2020 and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
