Fabrication and operation of flux qubits

We develop super-conducting quantum bits (qubits) for a future quantum computer. Specifically, we focus on flux qubits. We have achieved coherent quantum dynamics and have successfully implemented strong coupling to a harmonic oscillator so that a single photon could be exchanged.

Our research is long-term; potentially a quantum computer is more powerful than any conventional computer, for specific tasks. Super-conducting qubits may provide the route to a large scalable quantum computer.
