Quantum Research in Germany

This map offers an overview of all Clusters of Excellence and research centers participating in the Quantum Alliance, covering Germany's most important centers in quantum science and technology (QST). Research in QST is also done at other locations in individual research groups at universities, research institutions as well as in companies. Alltogether Germany offers a very rich landscape in quantum research covering all fields of quantum science and technology at various locations and institutions. It is worth learning more!

Partner institutions

Complexity and Topology in Quantum Matter

Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg(JMU) | Technische Universität Dresden

The cluster ct.qmat is a leading international center for research on topological and complex quantum matter. Our aim is to develop a deep understanding of quantum phenomena in general and to identify materials in which those phenomena are observed in the laboratory, with the goal to prove and enable novel applications.

CUI: Advanced Imaging of Matter

Universität Hamburg | Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) |
Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter | European XFEL

The cluster’s central objective is to understand emergent phenomena of matter and – going one step further - to dynamically create new functionalities. Non-equilibrium emergence – its understanding and control – is the overarching theme of the cluster. Central to its success is the imaging of the dynamics of complex physical and chemical systems in real time, on the atomic scale.

Matter and Light for Quantum Computing

University of Cologne | RWTH Aachen | University of Bonn | Research Center Jülich

The aim of ML4Q is to develop new computing and networking architectures using the principles of quantum mechanics. Computing and networking power beyond anything classically imaginable would make quantum computers powerful tools in key areas such as materials design, pharmaceutics, or artificial intelligence. Quantum communication could be made effectively secure.

Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich (LMU) | Technical University Munich (TUM) |
Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) | Walther-Meissner-Institute (WMI) | Deutsches Museum (DM)

MCQST brings together more than 50 research groups from various disciplines to collaborate on an ambitious research program covering all fields of quantum science and technology (QST). The main goal is to discover and understand the novel and unifying concepts of QST, making them tangible and practical for the development of next generation quantum devices.

Quantum Frontiers

Leibniz Universität Hannover | TU Braunschweig | Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt |
Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) | Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. | University of Bremen, ZARM

The mission of Quantum Frontiers is to merge quantum metrology and nanometrology, in order to advance to the next level of unprecedented sensitivity and precision, and to push the bounds of knowledge at the largest and smallest dimensions: from gravitational wave astronomy to the manipulation of light and matter on the quantum level.
