Abstract:

 

Superconducting quantum circuits are one of the most promising quantum information technologies, combining long coherence with flexible design, addressability, and scalability. However, decoherence mechanisms in these circuits prevent them from reaching their full potential. I will introduce some key mechanisms of decoherence and explain how they affect quantum circuits. I will also discuss some experiments in my lab that aim to characterize and eliminate decoherence mechanisms and create better quantum computing devices.
