The future of quantum computing relies on having qubit with sufficient good quality. Specifically, the error per operation needs to be below a certain threshold before we are able to track errors in real time and subsequently correct for any potential errors. In the Andersen lab, we will be addressing the challenge of archiving the highest performance qubits through novel qubit designs.
Specifically, we will be working towards novel superconducting and superconducting/semiconductor qubit architectures with intrinsic protection against errors. These architectures will include fluxonium qubits, nanowire-transmon qubits and beyond. We aim towards demonstrating record low error rates of single qubit gates, two-qubit gates and readout operations to enable high-performing quantum technologies of the future.
