A Compound Josephson Junction Coupler for Flux Qubits With Minimal Crosstalk

This is the device used to couple qubits in the current design. It is used in the 128-qubit systems currently under test.

An improved tunable coupling element for building networks of coupled rf-SQUID flux qubits has been experimentally demonstrated. This new form of coupler, based upon the compound Josephson junction rf-SQUID, provides a sign and magnitude tunable mutual inductance between qubits with minimal nonlinear crosstalk from the coupler tuning parameter into the qubits. Quantitative agreement is shown between an effective one-dimensional model of the coupler’s potential and measurements of the coupler persistent current and susceptibility.
