\nQuantum computing architectures with ten or more qu antum bits (qubits) have been implemented using trapped ions and super conducting devices. The next milestone in the quest for a quantum comp uter is the realization of quantum error correction codes. Such codes will require a very large number of qubits that must be controlled and measured by means of classical electronics. One architectural aspect requiring immediate attention is the realization of a suitable interco nnect between the quantum and classical hardware. In this talk\, I wil l introduce the quantum socket\, a three-dimensional wiring method for qubits with superior performance as compared to two-dimensional metho ds based on wire bonding. The quantum socket is based on spring-mounte d micro wires – the three-dimensional wires – that connect electri cally to a micro-fabricated chip by pushing directly on it. The wires have a coaxial geometry and operate well over a frequency range from D C to 10 GHz. I will present a detailed characterization of the quantum socket\, with emphasis on generalized time-domain reflectometry\, a n ew signal integrity tool developed in my lab. As a proof of concept fo r quantum computing applications\, I will show a series of experiments where a quantum socket was used to measure superconducting resonators at a temperature of ~10 mK. I will also show preliminary results wher e a socket was used to characterize resonators fabricated from molecul ar beam epitaxy aluminum films on gallium arsenide substrates. In conc lusion\, I will give an outlook demonstrating how the quantum socket c an be used to wire a quantum processor with a 10 × 10 qubit lattice a nd I will outline our present work toward the implementation of such a lattice.
