Superconducting Circuits: A Promising Platform for Quantum Computing
After twenty years of steady progress, superconducting circuits have become one of the most promising platforms for implementing quantum computation. In this talk, I will first discuss the fundamental aspects of superconducting circuits which make them suitable for quantum information processing purposes. Then I will discuss recent progress and challenges in building a quantum computer with superconducting circuits.
