Two Startup Grants for Quamplify


Quantum computers operate best at temperatures below a few kelvin and some architectures require large magnetic fields. These are conditions at which classical electronics components often behave unpredictably.

Quamplify, a project started by Rafael Eggli, Taras Patlatiuk and Miguel Carballido at the department of physics Quantum Coherence Lab, aim to build and commercialize next-generation electrical components which are designed to operate perfectly down to mK temperatures and in large magnetic fields, centered around the quantum paraelectric strontium titanate. They have been awarded the Innovation Offices "Propelling Grant" as well as the NCCR SPINs "SPINnovate Seed Grant" to develop the first prototype of a cryogenic ultra-low noise radio-frequency amplifier, a critical component for qubit readout and many other applications.
