I want to start studying quantum hardware, in particular I'm interested on superconducting qubit. Are there any valid resources for a beginner (notes, lecture...)? I'm an electronic engineer and I have some knowledge of quantum mechanics and quantum computation


1 Answer 1


One of the main resources in general, would be:

I usually find the thesis to be very beginner-friendly, as they explain most things in much more detail than papers.

To get an overview of quantum hardware and superconductivity:

For circuits, resonances, qubit quantizations

Specific implementations of qubits - i.e., charge, flux, phase, transmon qubits:

Two qubit gates - in theory, experimental implementation, gate errors:

Decoherence mechanisms in qubits:

For nanofabrication and packaging:

For cryogenics, how dilution fridges works:

Particularly, for fluxonium architecture:

Weak qubit measurements and feedback:

For novel qubit architectures like 0-pi, trimon, blochnium etc.

  • $\begingroup$ @Simona99 Here is the link for Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. They are on Walther-Meißner-Institut's website. I think you can change the chapter number in the URL to access other chapters aswell. $\endgroup$
