Publisher: Yale University 2011
Number of pages: 132
These lectures are devoted to understanding the basic components of quantum machines that can be constructed from superconducting electrical circuits. These circuits can be used to create resonators which store individual microwave photons and to create superconducting quantum bits.

This paper will guide computer scientists and other non-physicists through the barriers that separate quantum computing from conventional computing. We introduce basics of quantum mechanics to explain where the power of quantum computers comes from.
