The IQT Nordics conference will feature Vivek Chidambaram, the Superconducting Hardware Development Manager at the National Quantum Computing Centre (NQCC) in the UK. With his specialized expertise in superconducting quantum hardware and a solid academic background from leading institutions, Chidambaram is poised to share valuable insights into the development and potential applications of superconducting quantum technologies.

Chidambaram’s role at the NQCC involves steering the development of superconducting quantum computing hardware, a key area in the quantum computing field. This technology is crucial for building scalable and efficient quantum computers, making his work fundamental to advancing the UK’s quantum computing capabilities.

Before his current position at the NQCC, Chidambaram was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford, Department of Physics, where he contributed to quantum computing research from 2020 to 2022. His research during this period likely enriched his understanding and expertise in quantum hardware, further qualifying him to lead developments in this technologically complex area.

Chidambaram’s educational journey includes a PhD in Physics from the University of Cambridge, where he conducted significant research that contributed to his current focus on superconducting quantum hardware. His MSc in Physics from the same university provided him with a strong foundation in the principles underlying quantum mechanics and quantum computing.

At the IQT Nordics conference, Chidambaram is expected to delve into the current state and future prospects of superconducting quantum computing hardware, using his work at the NQCC as an example. His presentation will likely cover the challenges and breakthroughs in the field, the importance of superconducting technologies in achieving quantum advantage, and the role of national quantum initiatives like the NQCC in driving forward quantum computing research and development.

IQT Nordics/Helsinki, June 24-26, Aalto University, Dipoli Building, Helsinki
The second annual Nordics conference partners with Bluefors, Business Finland, The Finnish Quantum Institute, and VTT and will focus on real-world quantum technology applications.
