Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 911)

Abstract

Research is currently being conducted on quantum information processing, which is expected to be the next-generation approach to information processing. The development of quantum computers using superconducting circuits is an area of particularly intensive research and notable progress has been made. Achievements and outlook of this technology are discussed.

Keywords
