Varbanov, B.M. (author)The theory of quantum mechanics describes many phenomena that may initially seem to be counterintuitive and, in some cases, impossible, given the understanding of classical mechanics that most of us are more intimately familiar with. Following its initial introduction, there was a great deal of debate among scientists regarding the predictions...doctoral thesis 2024

Sagastizabal, R.E. (author)Superconducting qubits have seen a tremendous progress in the last two decades, and yet they remain unable to extract quantum advantage for application scenarios. While algorithms like Shor’s demonstrate quantum advantage in theory, they do not seem to fit modern noisy quantum processors. Then, in order to achieve quantum advantage either modern...doctoral thesis 2023

Stavenga, T. (author)Quantum computers promise to speedup certain problems that conventional computers take too long to solve. These problems include nitrogen fixation, quantum chemistry and prime factorization. One promising platform for the implementation of a practical quantum computer are superconducting qubits in combination with circuit quantum electrodynamics...doctoral thesis 2023

Battistel, F. (author)Computers are used all over the place to perform tasks ranging from sending an email to running some complicated numerical simulation. That is brilliant of course, because computers enable us to solve a lot of problems in the world in this way. At the same time, for some of those problems, not even powerful supercomputers are enough to get the...doctoral thesis 2022

Uilhoorn, W. (author)The technology of quantum computing is believed to solve certain computational problems significantly faster than classical computers, enabling classically inaccessible problems. However, the technology is still in its infancy and it is still too early to conclude which physical system(s) will form the basis of tomorrow's quantum computer. Small...doctoral thesis 2021

Rol, M.A. (author)The discovery of quantum mechanics in the 20th century forms the basis of many of the technologies that define our lives today. The ability to engineer and manipulate individual quantum systems  even create artificial atoms  promises a similar revolutionary leap in technology. A quantum technology of particular interest is quantum computing,...doctoral thesis 2020

Bultink, C.C. (author)Information processing based on the laws of quantum mechanics promises to be a revolutionary new avenue in information technology. This emerging field of quantum information processing (QIP) is however challenged by the fragile nature of the quantum bits (qubits) in which quantum information is stored and processed. An error in even a single...doctoral thesis 2020

Lüthi, F. (author)Quantum computers promise to solve certain problems such as quantum chemistry simulations much more efficiently than their classical counterparts. Although it is still unclear what material system will ultimately host largescale quantum computers, solidstate systems are promising candidates due to their inherent scalability and advanced...doctoral thesis 2019

Fu, X. (author)Quantum computers can accelerate solving some problems which are inefficiently solved by classical computers, such as quantum chemistry simulation. To date, quantum computer engineering has focused primarily at opposite ends of the required system stack: devising highlevel programming languages and compilers to describe and optimize quantum...doctoral thesis 2018

Dickel, C. (author)This thesis mainly summarizes two experiments that relate to building a quantum computer out of superconducting transmon qubits. Transmon qubits have emerged as one of the foremost solid state qubits, realizing processors with more than ten qubits and demonstrating small scale quantum algorithms as well as quantum error correction schemes. Right...doctoral thesis 2018
