Keynote: Engineering Quantum Systems of Superconducting Qubits

Quantum computers are fundamentally different than conventional computers. They promise to address problems that are practically prohibitive and even impossible to solve using today’s supercomputers. The challenge is building one that is large enough to be useful. In this talk, I will discuss aspects of engineering high-performance superconducting qubits, with an eye toward extensible applications. After a brief introduction to superconducting qubits [1], I will discuss our approach to packaging and 3D integration of high-fidelity devices [2].
