A SEMI Smart Data Hosted Webinar
8:00 am - 9:00 am
Online, Pacific Time,
Quantum computers allow certain problems to be solved exponentially faster than on any classical machine. Recent advances in the construction of small quantum processors have shown that there are no fundamental roadblocks to realizing this technology; however, significant challenges remain in scaling up devices to the millions of qubits that are required to build useful quantum machines.
In this webinar, Dr. Guilhem Ribeill will discuss how techniques borrowed from semiconductor fabrication have allowed superconducting qubits, one of the leading quantum platforms, to increase their quality by several orders of magnitude over the last two decades. He will also discuss outstanding problems in the fabrication, packaging, and control of superconducting quantum computers, and the future of the technology.
Guilhem Ribeill is a scientist at Raytheon BBN Technologies where he leads quantum device fabrication efforts for the Quantum Engineering and Computing group. With over ten years of experience in the design, fabrication and testing of classical and superconducting circuits he is involved in a variety of efforts to benchmark and improve the performance of quantum information processing systems. He earned his doctoral degree from the McDermott group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where his graduate research focused on novel qubit readout schemes including the first practical microwave single photon detector.
