Terhal Group



Barbara Terhal is a researcher at Forschungszentrum Jülich and, since 2017, professor at the EEMCS Department at the TU Delft and staff member at QuTech.

She has a long-standing interest and track-record in quantum error correction and fault-tolerance. She views a scalable implementation of quantum error correction as one of the great challenges in physics today. The fact that this challenge can be viewed both as a question of ‘mere engineering’ as well as a question about the fundamental viability of macroscopic quantum information, is precisely what makes it fascinating and thus its resolution ground-breaking.
