Martinis joins Google

Martinis joins Google, to aid in a project to build a quantum computer. The computer will be able to use quantum physics to solve problems more quickly than conventional computers. Martinis has spent more than a decade working on improving quantum computing, and has built some of the largest, most error-free systems of qubits, the basic building blocks that encode information in a quantum computer.

We would like to rethink the design and make the qubits in a different way. We think there’s an opportunity in the way we build our qubits to improve the machine. Martinis has taken a joint position with Google and UCSB that will allow him to continue his own research at the university.
