Milano-Bicocca and INFN join forces in the race to develop the world’s most powerful computer

A project called “Dart Wars”, coordinated by Andrea Giachero will be developed by the researchers of the Cryogenics Laboratory at the University of Milano-Bicocca’s “Giuseppe Occhialini” Physics Department

New ultra-sensitive quantum amplifiers that improve data and qubit transmission in the computers of the future. These include “the world’s most powerful computer”, which will be built at Fermilab in Chicago, USA. This is what will be developed by the researchers of the Cryogenics Laboratory at the University of Milano-Bicocca’s “Giuseppe Occhialini” Physics Department.

The project is called “Dart Wars”, is coordinated by Andrea Giachero, a researcher in Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics at the Milanese university, and has been selected by the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) as part of the competitive call for the “Development of quantum technologies for the fields of physics of interest to INFN".
