Josephson Devices as Tests of Quantum Mechanics Towards the Everyday Level

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

I review how, driven originally by foundational concerns and more recently by prospects of quantum computing, the idea of applying quantum mechanics to the motion of macroscopic variables such as the flux in a Josephson qubit went over the last 50 years from a theorists’ pipe-dream to an everyday engineering subject.
