The future Einstein Telescope may make use of quantum computers. Maastricht University will investigate the possibilities for this together with computer company IBM.
The university recently entered the IBM Q Network, a community of Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions, startups and national research labs working with IBM to advance quantum computing. The IBM-UM academic collaboration will also focus on addressing the computational needs of the LHCb detector at the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
