Göran Wendin

Professor at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience, Quantum Technology Laboratory

My research deals with Physics of Computing, from quantum computers to biological systems.
The development since the beginning of this century has been remarkable, and there is a vast field of exciting opportunities opening up.

My research has two main goals: (1) to contribute to creating a useful superconducting quantum computer for digital simulation of advanced problems in Chemistry; and (2) to develop educational material for explaining how modern physics - including quantum physics - will influence biology and medicine to create great interdisciplinary progress.

I share my research interests with a wide scientfic community. I would say that these topics and results are already of great interest to the general public as well as to industry. We are now at the stage of ”Quantum education” and will soon enter a stage of ”quantum applications”, from toy examples to serious applications. How this will affect Society remains to be discovered.
Nevertheless, it will surely fundamentally influence the general technology level.
