Title: Multi-spIn Molecular architectures On Superconductors for quantum Applications.

ICCOM Principal Investigator: Marco Bellini.

Project type: National.

Duration: 28/09/2023 – 27/09/2025.

Abstract: Research is at the forefront in the quest for the ideal platform to develop quantum information. Symmetry protection has a key role in defining this platform because guarantees  the robustness of the quantum superposition and magnetic-superconductor interfaces are good candidates for hosting this type of topologically protected quantum bits. Unfortunately their experimental realization is still hampered by the limited control that we can exert on the fundamental interactions at the interface. MIMOSA proposes a novel approach based on the realization of molecular architectures deposited on a superconducting substrate, where spin centers are exchange-coupled through the covalent skeleton of the molecule and interact with the magnetic superconductor charge carriers. The rational design of multi-spin molecular (MSMols) architectures with well-defined magnetic interactions represents an unprecedented tool for clarifying mechanisms underlying the formation of topological qubits in these hybrid architectures. The long-term goal of developing realizable quantum computing platforms is ground-breaking and expected to impact a broad range of social fields.
