## Tutorial 4 – A few words about quantum computing with superconducting qubits

In this forth tutorial, we discuss the second leading quantum computation platform, namely superconducting qubits. We will see how the superconducting qubits are produced, controlled and entangled.

In this series of tutorials, we provide a basic introduction into some of the fundamental concepts behind quantum hardware.

## Tutorial 1 – The qubit or the two level system

In this first tutorial we discuss the two-level system as it is the simplest unit of quantum computing systems. We discuss on a physics level with Hamiltonians its static properties like level splitting and avoided crossings. Then we discuss dynamical processes like Rabi oscillations and their connection to the notation of quantum computation.

In this second tutorial we continue the discussion of basic concepts for quantum hardware and introduce some properties of the quantum harmonic oscillator. We discuss how it is connected to its classical analogue, how to quantize it and how to solve its equation of motion.

## Tutorial 3 – A few words about quantum computing with trapped ions

In this third tutorial, we discuss one of the leading quantum computation platforms, namely trapped ions. We will see how the ions are trapped, the qubits are controlled and entangled.

## Tutorial 4 – A few words about quantum computing with superconducting qubits

In this forth tutorial, we discuss the second leading quantum computation platform, namely superconducting qubits. We will see how the superconducting qubits are produced, controlled and entangled.

## Tutorial 5 – Introduction to cold atoms

In this last tutorial, we introduce you to cold atoms. They have become a highly controlled and versatile platform to tackle hard problems from different parts of physics. Nowadays, you can also use them for more applied problems.
