Signal Source Challenges Facing Quantum Computing and Research

On Demand Available until December 6, 2017

Today there is a huge rush to explore quantum phenomena and develop technologies based on quantum physics. These technologies range from quantum computing to new communications schemes and have the potential to revolutionize the world. In developing these technologies, there are common challenges facing researchers who are using signal sources to stimulate, measure, and get feedback from their quantum experiments.

This Webinar will cover a high-level view of the mechanisms of how quantum experiments are triggered, the signal sources that are being used and the challenges that come with scaling, signal conditioning and synchronization needed to make a quantum technologies a reality.


Kip Pettigrew, Product Marketing Manager, Tektronix

Before moving to Oregon and joining Tektronix in 2013, Kip spent twelve years developing, building and managing cutting edge micro and nanotech solutions for a variety of public, private and government organizations including GlaxoSmithKline, ESI, DARPA, Berkeley, MIT, and the Army. He has built over 200 unique micro-scale devices for biological, quantum, RF and other applications. Kip obtained his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Micro Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS) from M.I.T. and Berkeley respectively and then his MBA from M.I.T. Sloan. Kip Pettigrew is currently the Product Marketing Manager for the SAPL signal sources and AWG product lines. When he’s not working, Kip enjoys running, excessive gardening, science fiction novel writing and collecting antique hourglasses.
