In this presentation, John Teufel explores how to interface quantum circuits with RF photonics. From the early days of superconducting qubits, one of their most attractive attributes was the inherent scalability of nanofabricated quantum circuits. If these engineered quantum devices… Read More »Interfacing Superconducting Quantum Circuits with an RF Photonic Link
