language English
duration 1 week
credits 1 EC

The superconducting quantum computer is the most advanced quantum computer to date. Due to the recent breakthroughs in implementing quantum error correction in this platform, the large-scale implementation of the quantum computer is at the horizon. In this course, we give a brief introduction to the quantum mechanics of superconducting electronics. Furthermore, we outline how these quantum components can be assembled to built the quantum computer.

Course leader

Lecturer: Research Professor Mikko Möttönen (Aalto University and University of Jyväskylä, Finland)

Coordinator: Dr. Sanna Mönkölä

Target group

The Summer School annually offers courses for advanced master’s students, graduate students, and post-docs in the various fields of science and information technology.

Course aim
