RIKEN Center for Emergent Matter Science Superconducting Quantum Electronics Joint Research Unit
Unit Leader: Eisuke Abe (D.Sci.)
We develop quantum technologies based on superconducting devices, with particular emphasis on the development of multi-qubit quantum computers. We aim to implement superconducting qubits (quantum bits) and functionalities for coherent control and non-demolition measurement of quantum states via microwaves on a superconducting quantum circuit consisting of Josephson junctions, microwave transmission lines, microwave cavities, Josephson parametric amplifiers, and so on, and to bring a quantum computer which executes computations intractable with classical computers closer to reality.
