Press Statement: Fraunhofer IOF endorses EQT lab

This semester has seen the prototype instalment of our new "Experimental Quantum Technology" lab course. We think it was great and will be the first of many. Fraunhofer IOF shares or thoughts and ideas and even released a press stament on the matter.

With the semester coming to a happy conclusion, I shall like to thank everybody involved, in particular the team of our prototype Experimental Quantum Tech lab course. The course, with 3 hand-on experiments on QuantumComputers and 6 on QuantumOptics was both exhausting and instructive. Read also Fraunhofer IOF's press statement.

The course was a collaboration of Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Fraunhofer IOF, Leibniz-Institut für Photonische Technologien, and the Max Planck School of Photonics. Access to IBM Quantums #QSystemOne via the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and their Quantum Now Initiative.

Particular thanks to Frank Setzpfandt, Rudrakant Sollapur, and Anand Kumar and last-but-not-least to all the students for their curiosity and patience.
