Superconducting Qubits: Qiskit Metal – Quantum Device Design and Analysis
The success of engineering complex quantum phenomena and large-scale quantum processors is rooted in our ability to rapidly and reliably design and analyze the underlying quantum devices. We introduce two new methods to this end and an open-source software platform for automated superconducting qubit layout, design, and analysis.
In this talk, I overview the use of the energy-participation ratio (EPR) of Josephson circuits (arXiv:2010.00620 & 1902.10355) and the modular quasi-lumped model for circuit quantum electrodynamics (cQED) (arXiv:2103.10344). These methods and others are implemented in our open-source framework Qiskit Metal, which we hope can help unify superconducting qubit design tools and simply the design and analysis. Metal aims to bring together experimentalists and theorists alike seeking to push the boundaries of quantum circuit theory and Hamiltonian analysis.
