A quantum engineer's guide to superconducting qubits
Journal article, 2019

The aim of this review is to provide quantum engineers with an introductory guide to the central concepts and challenges in the rapidly accelerating field of superconducting quantum circuits. Over the past twenty years, the field has matured from a predominantly basic research endeavor to a one that increasingly explores the engineering of larger-scale superconducting quantum systems. Here, we review several foundational elements-qubit design, noise properties, qubit control, and readout techniques-developed during this period, bridging fundamental concepts in circuit quantum electrodynamics and contemporary, state-of-The-Art applications in gate-model quantum computation.
