The Silicon Quantum Electronics Workshop focuses on silicon-based approaches to realizing quantum electronics circuitry such as quantum computers.
The purpose of the workshop is to unite the leading researchers, students, and postdocs in the field to discuss advances in silicon quantum device fabrication, measurement, modeling, and theory.

During the workshop the following topics will be discussed:

  • Qubit implementations in silicon and silicon-germanium,
  • Advances in materials and fabrication,
  • Cryogenic classical (nano)-electronics and classical electronic interfaces with qubits,
  • Computer-assisted design and analysis of dopant and quantum dot architectures,
  • Theory and modeling of charge and spin decoherence mechanisms in silicon,
  • Quantum error correction for Si and SiGe qubits,
  • Approaches to multi-qubit and coherent on-chip communication,
  • Hybrid-qubit approaches combining Si and/or SiGe with other qubit systems.

Abstract submission will open June 1st.

Registration will open July 15th.
