Our work on a molecular dimer hosting six addressable spin qubits is now published with Springer Nature in Communications Chemistry

Molecular spin processors are promising for quantum computing, but for universal applicability the available computational space needs to be expanded beyond three qubits while retaining the ability to perform universal quantum operations. Here, the authors report dissymetric molecular Gadolinium(III) dimers acting as 6-qubit quantum processors. You can freely access the paper at https://rdcu.be/ca4kM.

New "cryo-free" dilution refrigerator installed

INMA (Aragón Materials and Nanoscience Institute) received the new “cryo-free” dilution refrigerator from BLUEFORS, it has been installed and has started its first cool down. We have reached 1.15 K (-272 degrees celsius) before lunch. We are on the way to becoming the coldest place in Zaragoza ever!

       

    

INMA smash a new record!!! The device reached an amazing 9.2mK of temperature, new milestone achieved in INMA.
