Special emphasis has been given to a , originally published in Physical Review Letters. Scalability of quantum systems presents one of the key requirements for successful future developments in quantum information science. Based on modern optical technology, the research group at TU Darmstadt implemented a novel concept, which led to the scaling of the involved platform from two to three spatial dimensions without requiring the allocation of additional resources. For the first time, this approach allowed for the demonstration of a quantum processing architecture capable of supplying more than 10 000 units of quantum memory, so called quantum bits. publication presenting a novel concept of three-dimensional scaling of quantum processors
Scaling quantum processors to the third dimension allows for a significant increase in the number of deployable quantum bits.

In view of the panel of experts, the scalability in the number of qubits shown in this work represents an important step toward developing practicable quantum computers. They also foresee a variety of further applications in the field of quantum technologies, such as high-precision optical atomic clocks or quantum sensors for electric and magnetic fields.
