Fraunhofer ITWM

Mathematics for a bright future – that’s what we work for at the Fraunhofer ITWM. Our 520 employees currently use and develop a wide range of mathematical methods, including artificial intelligence, machine learning and quantum computing. Our research supports many industries, including medicine, mobility, mechanical engineering, finance and chemistry. We help to save energy, optimize products and processes and attach great importance to sustainability.

Quantum computing at the Fraunhofer ITWM with a focus on “High Performance Computing“

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft considers quantum computing to be a cutting-edge technology with a promising future. At the Fraunhofer ITWM in Kaiserslautern, the Quantum Computing Competence Center researches where quantum-based computing strategies are used and which complex problems can be (better) solved with them – from quantum chemistry to financial mathematics, material simulation, image processing and energy projects.

Fraunhofer ITWM and QUIP

In QUIP, we organize the Quantum Graduate Center, support doctoral students with individual advanced training and provide insights into the QC work at the participating institutions. We offer internships for students in the field of QC. Our task in the “Rymax” project, in which a Rydberg atom-based quantum simulator is being built, is to appropriately model the practical use cases from the optimization of the associated industrial partners and to provide suitable algorithms and software. Finally, in the “EniQmA” project, we are working together with partners from research and industry to systematize these hybrid quantum applications in a targeted manner and to provide middleware that makes it easy to use quantum algorithms in HPC workflows. In the “QCStack” project, we are developing a QC compiler that adapts idealized circuits for quantum algorithms to real QC hardware.
