Join us for a NEW webinar – Superconductor and Spin Qubit Pre-Screening: Accelerate Quantum Development – on April 5th. The webinar will run 9am – 10am PDT (6pm – 7pm CEST).

FormFactor and Keysight invite you to learn how to speed development cycles for advanced quantum development. The companies have collaborated to develop an integrated measurement solution for pre-screening qubit devices at mK temperatures. The solution eliminates wire-bonding and packaging from cryogenic test processes to provide critical qubit performance parameters at 50 mK, enabling streamlined deployment in existing dilution refrigerators at 10 mK to reduce development cycle times by more than 2X. The turnkey measurement solution is fully optimized for qubit pre-characterization applications which removes the time-consuming process of selecting and integrating each individual piece of equipment.

This webinar will present:

  • An overview of the required characterization process for superconducting qubit processors
  • Overcoming the challenges engineers face in advanced quantum development including:
    • Long development cycles
    • Complicated fabrication processes with few quality-control checks
    • DUT interfacing with time-consuming wire bonding and packaging for cryogenic test and measurement
    • Extended cooldown times of >30 hours with dilution refrigerators
    • Low yield or poor qubit performance and frequency crowding
  • An integrated, automated solution to return initial qubit parameters and accurately pass/reject devices prior to final deployment in a dilution refrigerator.


About the speakers:

Jack DeGrave, Business Development Scientist in Quantum Technologies, FormFactor Inc.

Jack DeGrave joined the FormFactor-HPD Business Development team in early 2021 where he has focused on engaging with the Quantum Development Community members to map out the needs for cryogenic test and measurement, high density I/O device interfacing, and cryostats for deployment of quantum processors. His background in cryogenic test and measurement dates to early 2010 during his PhD studies in low temperature transport properties of helimagnets and skyrmions at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After graduating, he held business development positions at several cryogenics companies. Jack brings greater than a decade of experience in cryogenic system design and test & measurement.

Philip Krantz, Business Developer & Quantum Physicist, Quantum Engineering Solutions, Keysight Technologies 

Philip Krantz is a Business Developer in the Quantum Engineering Solutions (QES) team at Keysight Technologies. In the team, he is both working to expand the customer base of the quantum measurement software Labber, as well as providing hands-on expertise in quantum engineering.
