“Self-Correcting Quantum Devices” Abstract:  Superconducting quantum circuits are among the most promising platforms for quantum computing and simulation. However, like all qubit technologies, they suffer from unavoidable noise and dissipation, which has thus far stymied the construction of a workable quantum computer. This can be mitigated by digital quantum error correction, or intriguingly, by introducing further noise, in the form of engineered dissipation, carefully tuned to passively correct errors and stabilize many-body states. In this talk, I describe an extremely…
