Since the comprehensive update in 2015, FMN Laboratory has been a key platform for scientific and engineering discoveries that ensure Russia's progress in quantum technologies, nanophotonics, biotechnology and special promising technological areas.

From undergraduate and postgraduate students to world-renowned scientists, we attract leading experts and give them the opportunity to make history using unique equipment and infrastructure.

Our special task is to educate young scientific and engineering staff. By implementing the “Russian method of teaching”, we are growing a new generation of engineers, technologists, and scientists.

Carrying out dozens of tests daily, our team is approaching the main goal – developing the element base for the future of the Russian quantum processor and other breakthrough solutions.

Dream Team to reach the most ambitious goals

Our team is a fusion of youth and experience, consisting of more than 50 employees and including experienced professionals and world-famous scientists, process engineers and designers, young graduate students and postgraduate students. We are actively involving leading Russian specialists living abroad in the implementation of scientific research, experimental design and industrial developments with a view to their further return to Russia. A special priority is the education of young scientific and engineering personnel. By implementing the “Russian method of teaching”, we attract students from Russian partner universities and form a new generation of engineers, technologists, and scientists.

Cutting-edge complex infrastructure

FMN Laboratory infrastructure design and implementation was carried out jointly with leading Russian and world companies. The list of partners and suppliers includes MECAL (Netherlands), Eltochpribor (RF), Hager + Elsaesser (Germany), Ritterwand (Germany), TMC (USA), Forbo Group (Switzerland), Faeth (Germany), Linde Gas (Germany), Spectron (USA), Collabratech (USA), Drager (Germany) and others. The center benefits from a three-stage 99.9995% air purification, four-stage vibration isolation system for highly sensitive technological equipment, ultra-pure deionized water with particle filtering up to 20 nm, a system for providing especially clean special gases.

High-class equipment of leading world manufacturers

In 2015, FMN Laboratory was equipped with the latest generation of equipment from leading world manufacturers such as Carl Zeiss (Germany), Karl Suss (Germany), Oxford Plasma Technology (England), Raith (Germany), Heidelberg (Germany), KLA-Tencor (USA), YES (USA), Sentech (Germany), Nikon (Japan), Ramgraber (Germany), Woolam (USA), etc. The capabilities of the technological complex include the processes of electron beam, laser and optical lithography, thin film deposition, plasma-chemical, liquid and vapor etching of a wide range of materials, as well as the necessary control and measurement methods, the possibilities of studying new materials and sample preparation.

В НОЦ ФМН созданы сверхпроводниковые кубиты-трансмоны мирового уровня с временем когерентности в 50 микросекунд
Towards a quantum computer: FMN Laboratory team produced qubit transmons with the coherence time of more than 50 microseconds

The FMN Laboratory team created and experimentally demonstrated 2D transmon qubits. This is the key basis of multi-qubit quantum processors of the entire world’ IT giants. Superconducting qubits have undeniable advantages, since they can be fabricated using the “standard” methods of modern nanoelectronics. It means a simple and fast scalability of superconducting quantum circuits and the mass production of quantum processors. FMN Laboratory team developed a technological base that allows competing with world scientific laboratories.
