In the superconducting charge qubit implementation of the qubit what I've understood is that we read a 1 if a Cooper pair has gone through the Josephson Junction into the "island" and we read a 0 if there is no Cooper pair. How come it's only possible that one Cooper pair passes the Josephson Junction? I don't really understand how this is a binary system as there seems to be more than two possibilities when one measures the system.

  • $\begingroup$ No sorry, I'm just asking how a superconducting charge qubit actually works. $\endgroup$
