The day-long event will feature 12 speakers across four topic blocks, with breaks interspersed throughout the day. Speakers from MIT, UMass Lowell, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Chalmers University of Technology, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Princeton will be among the presenters.

“I invited a mix of theorists and experimentalists to capture the latest advances in qubit readout,” said Lienhard. “It will focus on efficient and accurate extraction of quantum information and conversion to classical information. This process is essential to quantum information processing.

“The target audience for the workshop is experts in quantum computing who are working in academia and industry, and interested in discussing the state-of-the-art in qubit readout. The intent is to spark new ideas and catalyze new collaborations.”

The day will begin with a general introduction, ways to characterize the readout performance, and novel readout techniques. In the second session, the focus will be on processing the measurement signal. In the afternoon, presentations will center on the classification of qubit states. The workshop will close out with next steps in qubit readout.

The workshop is open and free to all, but registration is required. Interested participants can access this Google form to register. Upon approval, a Zoom link will be sent to your email.
