The WiN-Lab

The WiN-Labor develops software and tools on behalf of the DFN ( The DFN is the carrier of the German science network X-WiN. This network connects universities, research institutions and research-related companies in Germany with each other, as well as with scientific networks in Europe and other continents. With connection capacities of up to 100 Gigabit/s and a multi-terabit core network, X-WiN is one of the most powerful communication networks worldwide. Funded by the DFN-Verein, the WiN-Labor has been located at the Regional Computing Center (RRZE) of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg since 1992 with the start of the then “2-Mbit-WiN-Labor Project”.

Currently, the WiN-Lab is mainly engaged in research on quantum networks, techniques for time synchronization in the network, as well as methods for efficient handling of work processes and automatic provisioning of network resources.

The two application areas "Time&Frequency" (T&F) and quantum communication (QuC) have special technical requirements for data networks. For the transfer of high-quality signals, T&F requires bi-directional amplification, which in conventional data networks requires the signals to be d...

We have extended our Quantum Simulation portal. You will now find documents in which we describe our impressions of various quantum simulators that we have installed and tried (german language) out. Also a catalog (german language) with simulators that we think are interesting.
