IQST was origin­ally a joint centre of the Univer­sit­ies of Stutt­gart and Ulm and the Max Planck Insti­tute for Solid State Research in Stutt­gart, but has been growing to include groups at other univer­sit­ies in the state of Baden-Württemberg.

Facil­it­ies and research buildings

New build­ings with state-of-the-art labor­at­or­ies have been construc­ted: the Center for Applied Quantum Techno­logy (Zentrum für Angewandte Quanten­tech­no­lo­gie, ZAQuant, Univer­sity of Stutt­gart) and the Center of Quantum BioScience (Zentrum für Quanten-Biowissenschaften, ZQB, Ulm University). 

ZAQuant aims at devel­op­ing novel quantum devices and at bridging the gap between academia and industry; ZBQ aims at achiev­ing ground­break­ing advances in the fields of biology and medicine. 

In addition, the preci­sion labor­at­or­ies at the Max Planck Insti­tute for Solid State Research provide an isolated ‘noise-free’ envir­on­ment for exper­i­ments to achieve the highest sensit­iv­it­ies. There are clean rooms in all three IQST locations.
