El IFAE coordina el proyecto FET-Open AVaQus para desarrollar nuevas tecnologías de computación cuántica basadas en annealing cuántico

  • AVaQus tiene como objetivo mejorar la actual tecnología de annealing cuántico desarrollando nuevos circuitos cuánticos superconductores.
  • El annealing cuántico es una tecnología con el potencial de convertirse en una alternativa a los ordenadores cuánticos basados en puertas lógicas cuánticas, que son los que centran la mayor parte de la investigación actual en computación cuántica.
  • Los annealers cuánticos son dispositivos capaces de realizar cálculos y simulaciones cuánticas para resolver problemas de la vida real en áreas como la planificación, optimización, navegación, química cuántica, entre muchos otros.

The Quantum Computing Tech group at IFAE was established in May 2019 to lead the development of quantum computers in Spain and in the south of Europe. The group is led by Dr. Forn- Díaz and it represents the experimental quantum hardware team of the Quantic group established at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC), which develops quantum software.

IFAE donates protection equipment and puts its 3D printers to the service of coronavirus fight

IFAE has donated its stock of clean-room protection equipment to the UAB-related hospitals (St. Pau, Vall d'Hebró, Parc Taulí, Germans Tries i Pujol, among others). In total, almost 2000 items including masks, gloves, and booties. This initiative was coordinated by the UAB managed by the Technical Division team at IFAE.


On another front, the IFAE 3D printers are now being used for manufacturing 3D printed components for masks, door handles, and other pieces for respirators and other medical equipment for coronavirus fight. This initiative is done in coordination with LEITAT and Parc Taulí. The work is done at the home of IFAE engineer Juli Mundet, where the 3D printers have been moved due to the closure of IFAE, and the pieces delivered to Parc Tauli in Sabadell regularly.
