QuSoft congratulates Professor dr. Gilles Brassard who has been awarded the 2023 Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics for his foundational work in quantum information. He currently performs as “Turing Chair for Quantum Software” at the University of Amsterdam for the second time, until November 2022.
The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) has elected 22 new members, including QuTech professor Stephanie Wehner. Academy members, leading researchers from across all the disciplines, are selected for their scientific and scholarly achievements.
Serge Adonsou worked on a variant of the hidden shift problem under the supervision of Dr Peter Bruin (Leiden University) and Dr Maris Ozols (University of Amsterdam).
On 23 June 2022, CWI researcher Ronald de Wolf and his co-authors received the prestigious ACM STOC 10-year Test of Time Award during the ACM Symposium on Theory of Computing (STOC), one of the most important conferences in theoretical computer science.
Sophie Hermans | quantumfysicus. Het Delftse instituut QuTech werkt aan het quantuminternet. Daarmee kan bijvoorbeeld het ‘gewone’ internet veiliger worden.

CWI launches the Constance van Eeden PhD Fellowship with two videos and through social media (Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram). CWI offers a special PhD position to a talented young female student in mathematics, computer science or a related field, e.g. chemistry, biology, ICT physics or econometrics.
The Quantum Software Consortium is building a new research community in the Netherlands in Quantum Information Science. But what is Quantum Information Science? You perhaps heard of the quantum computer.
A computer that fundamentally uses different physics laws than a classical computer does. But like a classical computer, also a quantum computer uses software - quantum software !
Sebastian de Bone (QuTech, TU Delft) and Julius de Hond (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) created a website to give students and the general public an idea of how quantum key distribution works, and what it would be like to communicate through a quantum-encrypted channel. As an end user, you don't notice much, of course!
Sophie Hermans successfully defended her PhD thesis "Quantum Networks using Spins in Diamond" at Delft University of Technology on April 14, 2022. Ronald Hanson (QuTech, TU Delft) and Stephanie Wehner (QuTech, TU Delft) acted as promotors. The degree was awarded "cum laude".
De belangrijkste bouwstenen van de futuristische quantumcomputer zijn voor het eerst gemaakt in een fabriek voor ‘gewone’ computerchips. Daarmee zet deze toekomstcomputer een belangrijke stap naar de praktijk.
