Engineered dissipation using symmetry-protected superconducting circuits

Project description

Controlling photon decay could open the door to qubit reset and readout

For slightly more than a decade, a new type of superconducting qubit has taken the quantum computing world by storm. The transmon, used in a pioneering controlled qubit-qubit interaction a few years ago, has now become an important tool for investigating multi-qubit phenomena. The EU-funded EDSP project will exploit this system to investigate the possibility of harnessing typically problematic dissipation and decoherence rather than fighting them to enable qubit state reset and photon-mediated fluorescence readout of the state of the qubit.
