Investigating Quantum Hardware Using Microwave Pulses

The Qiskit Textbook mostly assumes we have a quantum computer that can carry out quantum operations, and doesn't worry about how the devices actually work. These pages go a step deeper, exploring the physics of superconducting qubits, and using Qiskit to program operations on these devices at the level of microwave pulses.

Prerequisite material

Multiple Qubits and Entanglement

With the basics down, this chapter explores the consequences of these new quantum effects, and sets us up with tools to understand quantum algorithms.

Python and Jupyter Notebooks

Python is a programming language where you don't need to compile. You can just run it line by line...
