Let's build a quantum computer! - Andreas Dewes

31c3 - Science - 12/29/2014

I will explain why quantum computing is interesting, how it works and what you actually need to build a working quantum computer. I will use the superconducting two-qubit quantum processor I built during my PhD as an example to explain its basic building blocks. I will show how we used this processor to achieve so-called quantum speed-up for a search algorithm that we ran on it. Finally, I will give a short overview of the current state of superconducting quantum computing and Google's recently announced effort to build a working quantum computer in cooperation with one of the leading research groups in this field.
