Gerhard explains the world of quanta

You may have heard of transistors, capacitors and coils as components of a classic computer. But how do you turn it into a quantum computer? What does all this have to do with superconductors? What can quantum computers actually do better than a classic computer and why are Google, IBM and Intel interested in it?

At the Pint of Science Festival in Innsbruck on 22-24 May 2023, Gerhard Kirchmair (OAEW.V) explains how to elicit quantum phenomena from electrical circuits with the help of superconductors and how to use them to build a quantum computer that can do “some things” better than a classical computer. The research conducted in SuperMeQ is used as a practical reference.
