Quantum processors based on superconducting quantum bits (qubits) are a leading candidate technology to realize gate-model quantum computation. As these processors increase in size and complexity, significant research effort is spent improving the performance of these devices at the single- and two-qubit level in order to reduce computational errors. Recent advances in materials quality, electromagnetic design, and Hamiltonian engineering work in concert to further the goal of making superconducting qubits more robust. This talk will provide an introduction to the theory, design, and fabrication of practical superconducting qubits and give context for the current progress and technical challenges in the field.
