Control and readout for quantum systems
In quantum computing, to perform logic operations with small error probabilities, quantum logic elements may require many physical qubits. The electronics that control qubits must be able to reset the qubits, detect errors and correct them in a timely way. Fermilab experts are designing highly integrated control and readout electronics to be compatible with these large numbers of qubits. One of the main challenges in quantum science is designing an architecture that solves problems of massive interconnection, massive data processing and heat load. Part of the electronics must also be able to operate at 4 kelvins and near absolute zero.
