Quantum Engineering of Superconducting Qubits

Friday April 23, 2021
3:30 pm


 Presenter:  William D. Oliver is jointly appointed a Lincoln Laboratory Fellow in the Advanced Technology Division and a Professor of the Practice in the MIT Physics Department. He also serves as the Associate Director of the MIT Research Laboratory of Electronics.Dr. Oliver works with the Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group at Lincoln Laboratory and the Engineering Quantum Systems Group at MIT, where he provides programmatic and technical leadership for programs related to the development of quantum and classical high-performance computing technologies for quantum information science applications. His interests include the materials growth, fabrication, design, and measurement of superconducting qubits, as well as the development of cryogenic packaging and control electronics involving cryogenic CMOS and single-flux quantum digital logic.
 Series:  Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
 Abstract:  Superconducting qubits are coherent artificial atoms assembled from electrical circuit elements and microwave optical components. 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 improvements in the manufacturing and control of these devices have moved the superconducting qubit modality from the realm of scientific curiosity to the threshold of technical reality. In this talk, we present recent progress, challenges, and opportunities ahead in the engineering larger scale processors.
