The Next Generation of Quantum Analyzers: SHFQA Launch Event
with Sadik Hafizovic,
Would you like to improve the readout of your superconducting or spin qubits, increase the fidelity of your quantum algorithm or scale up your qubit system size? These are the goals that motivated us to bring to the market the SHFQA Quantum Analyzer. In this virtual launch event, we will provide a technical overview of the instrument and discuss the strengths of its integrated, mixer-calibration-free frequency conversion scheme. We will also run instrument demonstrations to show you how to:
- Measure a resonator at 8 GHz with only two microwave cables;
- Perform the readout of 16 qubits in parallel; and
- Take advantage of the SHFQA's feedback capabilities and integrate the SHFQA into a 10-instrument QCCS.
An extended live Q&A session will allow you to ask us your questions about the SHFQA – join us for this event!
Focus on Recovering Signals in Optical Experiments
with Claudius Riek
Capturing meaningful information while avoiding sizable overheads is crucial for all experiments in optics. It is what makes the difference between data that can be analyzed straight away and a vast amount of data requiring substantial post-processing. Lock-in amplifiers and boxcar averagers help maximize the information content of data acquired in spectroscopy experiments, in studies of ultrafast phenomena and in feedback experiments such as laser stabilization.
In this webinar, you will see how specific settings on lock-in amplifiers and boxcar averagers impact the results of a measurement. We will focus on the filter function, the filter order and the time constant. You will also learn more about the relevance of some of the typical properties of electronic measurement devices for optical experiments such as the instrument's dynamic range, measurement bandwidth and signal input noise.
