We have been hearing about qubits for a long time now. We have mainly seen their mathematical representation. The next step is to think further and try to investigate how these qubits can be built in real-life laboratories. Florian Unseld (QuTech) will show us the different kinds of qubits that exist nowadays and their different advantages.
- Quantum bits
- Quantum mechanics (undergraduate level)
- (nice to have) Standard knowledge on transistors
Which property of photons is commonly used to encode a qubit?
How can strain be applied to a layer of silicon in a quantum dot?
