Quantum computing holds the promise to solve problems that are currently intractable by classical computing platforms. Such computing framework relies on the properties of quantum bits (qubits) that operates at cryogenic temperatures well below 1K. Besides a quantum processor, an operational quantum computer needs a classical electronic...

Recent advances in solid-state qubit technology are paving the way to fault-tolerant quantum computing systems. However, qubit technology is limited by qubit coherence time and the scaling of quantum processors is limited by the complexity of coupling quantum systems with a classical electronic infrastructure. Hence, the proposed approach is to...

In the development of wireless sensor networks, the lifetime of a sensor node is always a key design consideration. Since the battery in a sensor node can usually not be recharged or changed, power management is an effective way to extend the network lifetime. The wireless transceiver, also regarded as the ‘main radio’, is a relatively power...
