Quantum Technology promises to solve many intractable problems faced by society today, such as discovery of new drugs and materials, ultra-precise sensors and un-hackable communications.

For those unfamiliar with Quantum Engineering, this may seem like science-fiction, but we are in the midst of the Quantum 2.0 technology revolution. This webcast will provide a short introduction to quantum technology and its potential to revolutionize our day to day lives. From there, the various quantum platforms that exist today and a framework for how these systems are controlled will be described. We will conclude with challenges that remain to fully realize their potential and how Keysight Technologies’ Quantum Engineering Solutions group is paving the way for scientific advances.

Nizar Messaoudi (Member IEEE and APS) is the Solution Architect for the Quantum Engineering Solutions team at Keysight Technologies, Inc., where he is responsible for developing advanced, scalable electronic control systems for multiple qubit and quantum technologies. Prior to this, he worked as an RF Application Engineer at Keysight, supporting customers and enabling their success in several industries including Quantum Computing, 5G, Satellite Communications, and IoT. He also taught at the University of Waterloo, training well over 3000 engineers in the art of making RF measurements and managing the undergraduate RF and microwave laboratory. He is currently pursuing his Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo, with a specialty in Quantum Information. Previously, he received his Master of Applied Science degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, and his Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Calgary. His current research interests include Josephson Parametric Amplifiers (JPA) and quantum illumination. In conjunction with his role at Keysight, he is also investigating the effects of classical control electronics imperfections on quantum devices.
