The Qub-IT project aims to develop quantum sensing with superconducting qubits for present and future INFN fundamental-physics experiments. The main objective of the project is the realization of an itinerant single-photon counter that surpasses present devices in terms of efficiency and low dark-count rates by exploiting repeated QND measurements of a single photon and entanglement in multiple qubits. This device will find immediate application in light dark-matter searches.
INFN Ferrara is involved mainly in the implementation of the software interface between the Qibo software framework and the superconducting qubits control and readout platform, built with Xilinx FPGAs embedding RF ADCs and DACs.
