Superconducting Quantum Computing

Superconducting integrated circuits are a leading candidate for the realization of quantum bits ("qubits"). We are focused on the development of technologies to enable scaling to quantum arrays comprising thousands or millions of qubits, as needed for robust quantum error correction. We have separate research efforts in the areas of quantum coherence, quantum measurement, and high-fidelity coherent control. In addition, we are working with collaborators to develop hybrid quantum systems that capitalize on the distinct strengths of disparate quantum technologies.
