TITLESuperconducting quantum computing - an engineering point of view

ABSTRACTQuantum computing (QC) for its potential applications in commerce, science and national defense has been attracting huge investments from major companies such as IBM, Intel and Google. Superconducting quantum circuit (a.k.a. Superconducting qubit) as a core component in a quantum processor is well known for its reasonably long coherence time, high control fidelity and good scalability, which holds the prospect for realizing Quantum Supremacy among all other solid state systems.
In this talk, I aim to provide an overview of this field by addressing various practical aspects that are relevant to performing quantum computing in superconducting circuits. I will first introduce the concept of superconducting qubits, followed by two sessions of device fabrications and measurement techniques. Subsequently, I will show how to characterize and coherently control qubits to perform gate operations for future calculations. Finally, I will present the world trend on superconducting QC and the comparison between different QC platforms.
This talk will be delivered based on an engineering point of view, therefore, people without relevant background are welcome. Due to the time limitation, I will not talk about any quantum algorithms although they are important to understand how quantum computing can speed up certain calculations (attendees can refer to the attached ppt if interested).
