41171 Quantum Computer Architectures

6cp; 3hpw, on campus, weekly
Requisite(s): 41076 Methods in Quantum Computing

Fields of Practice: Quantum Information Science program



Quantum computers gain an exponential advantage over classical devices because their processors are built from quantum mechanical systems. The development of quantum architectures is a highly interdisciplinary topic, merging aspects of physics, information theory, computer science, and control theory. In this subject, students will learn the theory of how quantum processors work, the different approaches taken to building quantum processors, and the techniques utilized for the control and characterization of quantum computers.
