Superconducting circuits realize a quantum optical laboratory and is one of the leading platforms for quantum computation and simulation. It employs superconducting qubits as its building blocks, embedded within superconducting cavities. I will discuss the building of a new superconducting circuits lab at Technion and the process of design and fabrication of such circuits.   In the end I will present progress towards implementing a new multi-qubit computational gate , which we term “Zeno-Gate”.  In this scheme we show how the Zeno effect, that hinders motion for an observed quantum state, can be used  to create a multi-qubit entangling gate between non-interacting qubits.
