Oleg Mukhanov

CTO, SeeQC, Inc.


Oleg A. Mukhanov is CTO, co-CEO, and co-founder of SeeQC, Inc., a quantum computing spinout of Hypres. Dr. Mukhanov joined Hypres in 1991 to initiate the development of Rapid Single Flux Quantum (RSFQ) superconductor circuit technology. Prior to that, he was with Moscow State University where he co-invented RSFQ technology. At Hypres, Dr. Mukhanov went from circuit designer to chief technical officer, initiated and led many projects on high-performance digital and mixed signal RSFQ circuits for variety of applications including data and signal processors, analog- and time-to-digital converters. This resulted in the first commercial use of superconducting digital electronics – RSFQ-based Digital-RF receivers. He received the Ph.D. in physics from Moscow State University in 1988 and the M.S. in electrical engineering (with honors) from Moscow Engineering Physics Institute in 1983. Dr. Mukhanov authored and co-authored over 200 scientific papers, book chapters, and patents. Dr. Mukhanov is a Fellow of IEEE and recipient of The IEEE Award for Continuing and Significant Contributions in the Field of Small Scale Applied Superconductivity.
