Event description: 
Analyzing large superconducting circuits using solid-state inspired techniques
A promising avenue towards achieving enhanced coherence times in superconducting qubits is protecting them from noise by design. Such protected circuits are typically larger and more complicated than the one-dimensional transmon, and thus difficult to analyze. Here I present results for spectra and coherence times of Kitaev’s current-mirror circuit, an early proposal for a protected qubit and precursor to the 0-pi circuit. To this end we develop and employ methods inspired by solid-state physics to tackle the challenges of analyzing circuits of increased complexity.
