**Superconducting Qubits and Circuits**

by Steven M. Girvin

**Publisher**: Yale University 2011**Number of pages**: 132

**Description**:

These lectures are devoted to understanding the basic components of quantum machines that can be constructed from superconducting electrical circuits. These circuits can be used to create resonators which store individual microwave photons and to create superconducting quantum bits.
