Lay summary

The proposed research covers and interconnects multiple topics from the elds of quantum computing and condensed-matter theory. It contributes to the long term aim of nding realistic architectures that allow the coherent manipulation of nature at the quantum level.

The strategy we pursue encompasses the renement of the well-established scheme of spin-based quantum computing, as well as efforts to discover novel and realistic platforms that allow the storage and manipulation of quantum information. In view of the desired industrial feasibility and scalability of the results, we focus on the solid state as the basis of our research. Exciting and promising new materials will be examined and their suitability for quantum information processing will be evaluated. Moreover, we will study intriguing issues that are also of interest in fundamental research, ranging from novel types of quantum phase transitions to non-equilibrium dynamics. Also these fundamental aspects of our proposal are targeted on the ability to gain access to the quantum world.
