Decoherence due to flux noise in superconducting qubits at microkelvin temperatures

Project Description Decoherence in superconducting qubits is one of the main obstacles to realising fault-tolerant quantum computing for real-world applications. Many different physical mechanisms contribute to the decoherence of a qubit; some of which are still poorly understood. One of the main sources of noise and decoherence are material defects which are naturally present in […]
