The Biard Lecture

This talk will look at the status and challenges facing three prospective solid-state components that may someday end up powering a quantum computer: spins in semiconductors, Josephson junctions, and Majorana zero mode devices. Aside from the engineering challenges, each system reveals interesting physics.
