4. Description: Conductors. The National Quantum Computing Center (NQCC) aims to build several quantum computers. One of the most promising architectures for the fundamental building blocks of a quantum computer are superconducting circuits. The control of these circuits (qubits) and the quantum states which they maintain is crucial to the operation of a quantum computer. These states are controlled, maintained and read out via microwave electronics which are specially designed for this purpose.
