An overview of the quantum computer system by studying the quantum circuits and examples of hardware. First, you will learn about quantum circuits from their components. Next, you will learn many examples of hardware currently proposed. This course is related to DP1.
This class is provided by faculty members in charge of research and development at private companies.
You can understand the basics of quantum circuits. Then, by learning many hardware examples, you can understand the advantages and disadvantages of individual quantum-computing devices.
Evaluation will be based on small tests and reports (50%) and results of final exams (50%).
