Quantum Information and Quantum Optics with Superconducting Circuits
Quantum Information and Quantum Optics with Superconducting Circuits 2022
Built with sizes that range from microns to
tens of meters using superconducting fabrication techniques and microwave technology,
superconducting circuits demonstrate distinctive quantum properties such as superposition and entanglement at cryogenic temperatures.
This book provides a comprehensive and self-contained introduction to the world of superconducting quantum circuits and how they are used in current quantum technology.
Beginning with a description of their basic superconducting properties, the author then explores their use in quantum systems, showing how they can emulate individual photons and atoms and ultimately behave as qubits within highly connected quantum systems.
Particular attention is paid to cutting-edge applications of these superconducting circuits in quantum computing and quantum simulation.
Written for graduate students and junior researchers, this accessible text includes numerous homework problems and worked examples
