Quantum kittens, cats, combs and compasses: superposing coherent states for sensing, communication, computing and pleasure

Barry Sanders

I will give an informal overview of how quantum computer hardware can be made, using "artificial atoms" as quantum bits (qubits) based on superconducting chips. I will show how you can access these systems over the cloud to run your own experiments, and how we use this to teach quantum computing to second year undergraduate students in science and engineering at University of Victoria. Finally, I will give an overview of the problems we are working on in my research group, related to understanding and mitigating the impact of noise in quantum hardware and software.
