I am looking to analyze some quantum hardware designs, preferably superconducting and photonics, but I can't seem to find sources that give some detailed information. Can someone provide me designs for any of the technologies mentioned above?

  • $\begingroup$ What level of design are you interested in? Are you wondering how these devices are fabricated, or how/why the chips are laid out, or the basic physics around how these types of qubits work? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ PhD theses are usually a great resource for this kind of thing. Here's a random example that devotes a few chapters to device design/fab for sc qubits web.physics.ucsb.edu/~martinisgroup/theses/Kelly2015.pdf. You can probably skim this page for other design theses/papers web.physics.ucsb.edu/~martinisgroup/theses.shtml $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It depends on the type of hardware, I was involved in the first reverse engineering of D-Wave's Pegasus architecture: arxiv.org/abs/1901.07636 $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 14, 2020 at 19:52
  • $\begingroup$ You may not find the state of the art fabrication and chip design details since the big companies might want to keep them private :/ $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 4, 2021 at 19:38
