Based on the Josephson effect. Yet another application of that phenomenal idea!
🔗
Philosophically, this approach is promising because superconductivity is a macroscopic quantum phenomena of Bose Einstein condensation, and so as a macroscopic phenomena, it is easier to control and observe.
🔗
It is fun to see that the representation of information in the QC basically uses an LC circuit, which is a very classical resonator circuit.
🔗
As mentioned at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superconducting_quantum_computing#Qubit_archetypes there are actually a few different types of superconducting qubits:
  • flux
  • charge
  • phase

and hybridizations of those such as:

Input:
  • microwave radiation to excite circuit, or do nothing and wait for it to fall to 0 spontaneously
  • interaction: TODO
  • output: TODO

Video 137. "Alexandre Blais - Quantum Computing with Superconducting Qubits (Part 1) - CSSQI 2012" published by Institute for Quantum Computing on 2012-11-23. Source. 784s explains why non-linearity is needed: otherwise the input energy would just go to higher and higher levels.

Video 138. "Quantum Transport, Lecture 16: Superconducting qubits" by Sergey Frolov published on Mar 26, 2013. Source. 1171s describes several possible realizations: charge, flux, charge/flux and phase.
