Overview:

Superconducting qubits are one of the most promising technologies to realize a large-scale fault-tolerant quantum computer. During the past decade, the superconducting qubit architecture has made a remarkable progress on improving qubit performance, demonstrating a few small quantum codes. I will first briefly review the leading technologies for quantum information processing and overview the superconducting quantum circuits with highlights of the recent progress.
