Noise and errors have been the bottlenecks for building robust quantum machines.  I will describe a proposed new class of superconducting devices that has built-in error rejection.  Fundamentally, the encoding that facilitates this intrinsic robustness comes from the recognition that the Bloch band structure of these systems leads to a much bigger Hilbert spaces than has been traditionally considered.  The extra space affords new qubit encodings, which I describe in two different instantiations.

About Physics Seminars

The weekly Physics Seminar series focuses on a broad range of physics research within SMP, along with frequent presentations from visiting researchers. Seminars are usually scheduled for 1.00pm on Tuesdays.

The talks are typically more specialised than a colloquium but are often attended by staff and PhD students across a broad range of areas. Speakers are thus encouraged to include introductory material in the talks.

All SMP researchers and HDR students are encouraged to speak. Please email Glen Harris to register your interest.

The seminars are open so there is no need to register your attendance.
