The tutorials in this chapter have been created to allow users to become more familiar with the operation of the SHFQC+ Qubit Controller. The first tutorials are useful at an early stage to learn how to use the General User Interface to configure the Signal Generator control channels. Later tutorials focus on controlling the instrument using our basic Python API and introducing the Quantum Analyzer readout channel — including tips and tricks for optimally programming the instrument for typical superconducting qubits applications.

In order to successfully carry out the tutorials it is assumed that users have certain laboratory equipment and basic equipment handling knowledge.


In the tutorials, we use both the General User Interface and the Python API to control the instrument.


For all tutorials, you must have LabOne installed as described in the chapter Getting Started.
