    • Exploring Practical Methodologies for the Characterization and Control of Small Quantum Systems 

      Hincks, Ian (University of Waterloo, 2018-09-04)
      We explore methodologies for characterizing and controlling small quantum systems. We are interested in starting with a description of a quantum system, designing estimators for parameters of the system, developing robust ...
    • Improved Diagnostics & Performance for Quantum Error Correction 

      Jain, Aditya (University of Waterloo, 2023-08-04)
      Building large scale quantum computers is one of the most exciting ventures being pursued by researchers in the 21st century. However, the presence of noise in quantum systems poses a major hindrance towards this ambitious ...
    • On Realistic Errors in Quantum Computers 

      Skanes-Norman, Joshua (University of Waterloo, 2021-05-27)
      In this thesis, we are concerned with the problem of characterizing noise associated with implementations of quantum circuits. We first explore the notion of error rates of quantum circuits and argue that the semantic ...
    • Theory and Mitigation of Crosstalk on Quantum Information Processors 

      Winick, Adam (University of Waterloo, 2023-09-08)
      Successfully implementing large-scale quantum computation has proven to be an exceptionally arduous task. Decoherence and imperfect control limit the coherent manipulation of large ensembles of particles. While quantum ...
    • Three Results in Quantum Physics 

      Huq, Jaron Meser (University of Waterloo, 2019-05-09)
      This thesis is split into three disjoint sections. The first deals with two practical issues regarding the use of unitary 2-designs. A simplified description of how to generate elements of the smallest known unitary 2-design ...
    • A walk through quantum noise: a study of error signatures and characterization methods 

      Carignan-Dugas, Arnaud (University of Waterloo, 2019-09-17)
      The construction of large scale quantum computing devices might be one of the most exciting and promising endeavors of the 21st century, but it also comes with many challenges. As quantum computers are supplemented with ...
