Add to Calendar 5/1/2019 4:00 pm 5/1/2019 America/Chicago Physics Colloquium: "Modular Superconducting Quantum Computing" DESCRIPTION:

Superconducting circuits have emerged as a competitive platform for realizing a practical quantum computer, satisfying the challenges of controllability, long coherence and strong interactions between individual systems that are at the heart of coherent quantum computation.  In this talk, I will explain some of the engineering challenges the field faces and how address these based on fundamental insight from quantum optics.  In particular, I will show how we can realize a random access quantum architecture using a parametric interactions between superconducting qubits and multi-mode resonators for local operations. Moreover, we can entangle distant modules, to realize a quantum network of processors. Finally, I will describe progress towards autonomous quantum error correction and designing qubits protected from relaxation by matrix-elements rather than environmental engineering.
