William D. Oliver is jointly appointed the Henry Ellis Warren (1894) Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and a professor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He serves as the director of the Center for Quantum Engineering and as associate director of the Research Laboratory of Electronics. He is a principal investigator in the Engineering Quantum Systems Group at MIT. He provides programmatic and technical leadership targeting the development of quantum and classical high-performance-computing technologies. His research interests include the materials growth, fabrication, design, and measurement of superconducting qubits, as well as the development of cryogenic packaging and control electronics involving cryogenic CMOS and single-flux quantum digital logic.


Informing Potential Remedies for Quasiparticle Poisoning

Measurements of the temperature distribution of quasiparticles in superconducting circuits reveal behavior that could inform strategies for mitigating quasiparticle-induced errors in superconducting qubits. Read More »
