Quantum Engineering of Superconducting Qubits
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall (RECEPTION TO FOLLOW TALK)
Speaker: William D. Oliver, MIT-Lincoln Labs
Abstract: 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. In this talk, we review this progress and the challenges ahead as we create the future of engineered quantum systems.
Reception: following the talk
Host: Maxim Vavilov
