Moore’s law predicts (Moore 1965) that informatics devices should soon reach the limit where device speed can no longer be improved using conventional electronics. This has motivated the quest towards novel architectures, which include quantum computers, so-called neuromorphic computing (which essentially mimics the function of the human brain) and spintronics. The latter phrase is a merger of „spin” and the „electronics” associated „tronics” (S. A. Wolf et al. Science 16, 294 (2001).). 


Robert Feidenhans´l, the Managing Director of European XFEL, Schenefeld Germany is our next guest of the Wigner Colloquia. The title of his lecture is: “European XFEL : The strongest X-ray beam in the world“.
Wigner Colloquia is a highlighted seminar series of the Wigner Research Centre for Physics. Invited speakers are the most excellent researchers from different areas of physics. The goal of the program is to give first-hand knowledge to our colleagues and the interested professional public from well-known scientists from all over the world.

OpenSuperQPlus unites 28 European research partners from 10 countries aiming to develop a 1,000 qubit quantum computer. From Hungary Wigner Research Centre for Physics and Budapest University of Technology and Economics are participated in the project.
The newest research results of researchers of the Wigner Research Center for Physics, Krisztián Palotás and Levente Rózsa, in collaboration with the Technical University of Ilmenau have been published in the leading international scientific journal Nano Letters.
The next speaker of the Wigner Colloquium on 7 Mars, is Prof. Matthias Wuttig, the Chair of Physics of Novel Materials at RWTH Aachen University in Germany. The title of his lecture is: Functional Materials by Design: Developing Treasure Maps with Quantum Chemistry.
