Quantum engineering of superconducting Qubits

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Plasma Science and Fusion Center, NW17-218

A talk by William Oliver, MIT

Superconducting qubits are coherent artificial atoms assembled from electrical circuit elements. Their lithographic scalability, compatibility with microwave control, and operability at nanosecond time scales all converge to make the superconducting qubit a highly attractive candidate for the constituent logical elements of a quantum information processor. Over the past decade, spectacular improvement in the manufacturing and control of these devices has moved superconducting qubits from the realm of scientific curiosity to the threshold of technical reality. In this talk, we review this progress and our own work at MIT that is creating a future of engineered quantum systems.
