The QHL project

The QHL project (Quantum Hypercomputing Laboratory) is an advanced project aimed to realize an excellence laboratory for the realization of a quantum hypercomputing system based on the novel theoretical results in the field of quantum dynamics of evanescent photons and its coupling with new materials obtained at FoPRC.

QHL then joins FoPRC’s Theoretical Division results about evanescent photons quantum dynamics and macroscopic coherent quantum states of matter with Advanced Technology Division’ results on quantum algorithms and new materials for the realization of physical substrates for hypercomputing.

According to these studies. evanescent photons, as those produced in highly-coherent quantum states of matter, could be manipulated in order to make quantum computations in a completely novel and still unexplored fashion. This could allow to perform accelerated computation, overcoming the current computational limits, as stated by Turing barrier, by realizing a countable infinite number of computational steps within a finite time interval without incurring into the difficulties that affect usual schemes of quantum computation, like environmental decoherence, large qubits ensemble manipulation, irreversible energy dissipation and so on.

To this aim a fundamental question arises to what kind of material could be used as physical substrate for hypercomputing. Our studies show some special kind of new materials can be suitably designed in order to give a holographic support for such hypercomputing processes and, under some conditions, to reproduce a sort of “hot” superconductivity in material systems containing macroscopic coherent domains.

Our results clearly indicate it could be possible to realize a new concept of optical-like quantum computer able to overcome the current computational limits and introducing a new frontier in the field of quantum computation, and whose applications to both theoretical and advanced-technology fields (from the simulation of complex quantum systems to research and understanding of fundamental laws, from biophysics to biotechnology to the whole field of Artificial Intelligence, data encryption and decryption, etc.) would be very deep and nowadays unimaginable. The theoretical research steps are in hard progress and the results so far obtained have received, during the last few years, important international acknowledgments in several scientific seats; FoPRC is then planning to start, as soon as possible, a designing and prototyping phase for which it is currently searching for partnerships and research funds, even participating in network contracts, clusters, incubator activities able to attract financial supports as well as venture capital investments.

This manifesto is a call to launch an ambitious European initiative in quantum technologies, needed to ensure Europe’s leading role in a technological revolution now under way.

Book description

Quantum Computing is an ever-increasing field of interest both from a conceptual and applied standpoint. Quantum Computing, belonging to the so called “Quantum Information Science”, is founded on the principles of Quantum Mechanics and Information Science. Quantum Mechanics has radically changed our vision and understanding of the physical reality and has had also an enormous technological and societal impact. On the other hand, the developing of Information Theory, including computer science and communications theory, made possible the information “revolution” which had a deep impact on our everyday life. Quantum Computing then relates to the possibility to represent, process and manipulate information by using the principles of quantum mechanics. Apart the theoretical importance of quantum computing to further understand the quantum mechanical behavior of physical systems and the physical foundation of information itself at the most elementary level, probably the most interesting feature of Quantum Computing is related to the possibility to design and realize an actual quantum computer which processes information in the form of quantum-bits or qubits. The great interest of scientific community in the realization of such devices mainly concerns the common believe they could be enormously faster than their classical counterparts so allowing their employment in all the applied fields where computational power is a key feature. Furthermore, the study of Quantum Computing, both at the physical and computational level, would be very important for a deeper understanding of the quantum behavior of a very wide range of physical systems including condensed matter, living systems, elementary particles, astrophysical structures and so on. Despite the general theoretical basis of quantum computing are sufficiently understood, the actual realization of a general – purpose and really usable quantum computer has posed great difficulties so far, mainly related to the issue of “quantum decoherence”, the computational speed and scalability many of which still remain substantially unsolved.

This volume doesn’t mean to represent a complete or a beginner guide to Quantum Computing but has the aim to present some of its most interesting and fascinating developments in different frontier areas related to both theoretical and applied aspects, such, for example, the possibility to realize a quantum superfast “hypercomputing” system using water molecules as physical substrate to process, storage and retrieve information; the connection between quantum computers and quantum gravity; the development of an “instantaneous quantum computer algorithm”; the realization of a universal quantum computer, of a brain-like quantum supercomputer and many others frontiers topics. The target audience of this book is then composed by scientists and researchers interested in the most advanced theoretical and applied developments of quantum computation and quantum information.
