Quantum Technology User Meeting 2024 - in Zurich

Quantum Technology User Meeting 2024

Zurich Instruments Quantum Technology User Meeting will be hosted jointly with Rohde & Schwarz at the Renaissance Zurich Tower Hotel. Exchange knowledge with your peers, engage in new collaborations, and learn firsthand how to use the instruments in dedicated tutorials, all to expand the community of Zurich Instruments super-users in the field of superconducting quantum information processing.

This User Meeting will comprise scientific talks from international speakers, practical training sessions, and poster presentations. Curious to take a look behind the scenes? Take a tour of our on-site production facility, followed by an apéro at our headquarters.

The topics for this year will focus on the details of superconducting quantum computing experiments, including:

  • Circuit QED, transmon, and fluxonium qubits
  • Hybrid superconductor-semiconductor structures
  • Optimal control
  • Scale-up and co-design of superconducting quantum processors
  • Chip testing
