One of the strong suits of classical computers is that we can connect all the complex layers in the computer to a simple User Interface (UI), making the computer accessible for everyone! So how will this work for the quantum computer? Quantum computers will exist of multiple building blocks. In fact, we need a lot of blocks before we can run our Quantum algorithm. See the schematic!
This video will give you an overview of the whole system. Koen Bertels, professor at QuTech, will take you on a journey through all layers. In other videos on this platform, we will dive deeper into each specific layer.
What aspects do you think make the scaling of number of qubits something difficult to achieve?
A timeline of the steps forward in the development of quantum computing.
The guide principles of dilutation refrigeration gives some background on the refrigerators used for quantum computing. Dilution refrigerators have been used for cooling anything from millimeter-sized semiconductors to 3-ton gravitational wave detectors, down to milliKelvin (mK) temperatures.
