Heat management for future quantum computers
Jorden Seniorin väitösuutinen

Title of the dissertation is "Heat Transport in Superconducting Quantum Circuits".

In the dissertation, we present experiments looking at the interface between thermodynamics, dissipation, and heat management, with the superconducting circuits essential in many quantum technologies, such as quantum computers and sensors.

In particular, we demonstrate the fabrication and operation of a superconducting quantum bit, and measure how adding dissipation to a superconducting resonator changes the operational properties. We then combine two dissipative resonators with a superconducting qubit as the interface, to study thermodynamic transport in this hybrid quantum device, that is ubiquitous in modern quantum information studies.
