As a crucial step in the bring-up of superconducting experiments, IQ mixer calibration normally requires multiple instruments from different parties and manual cabling work. This blog post describes how to use the Zurich Instruments HDIQ, HDAWG and UHFQA (or other […]

AWG Precompensation for high-fidelity CZ gates in transmon qubits

on November 2, 2019 at 10:44 am by Chunyan Shi
High quantum gate fidelity is essential for all quantum hardware platforms. Temporal sensitivity to flux noise and flux pulse distortion can pose major limitations to achieving high fidelity with repeatable two-qubit gates in transmon qubits. In recent publication, Rol et […]
