Recent progress in quantum information processing with solid-state systems has seen the demonstration of high-fidelity operations, long coherence times, measurement of entanglement, and the first solid-state algorithm.  To continue this rate of progress will require a significant degree of cross-fertilization between communities working on superconducting systems and electron spins.  It is the goal of this workshop to bring leaders in the two fields together to discuss recent progress, unanswered questions, and future directions for building a solid-state quantum-information processor.

Focus topics:

  • QIP with solid-state systems 
  • High-fidelity single- and two-qubit gates
  • New designs for superconducting qubits
  • Decoherence sources and error estimations
  • Generating and measuring entanglement
  • Encoded spin qubits (singlet-triplet vs. single-spin)
  • Hybrid systems
