Bottom-up nanoscale synthesis of quantum circuits

This thesis recounts efforts in the intersection between physics and materials science towards the realization of nano- and microscale circuits with relevance for quantum computing applications. The thesis itself includes scientific explorations of different considerations necessary for high-quality circuit synthesis based on two main types of techniques. The science presented is mostly theoretical and simulation-based, demonstrating the feasibility of the methods proposed.
