In science:

Recently, through dynamical decoupling with a flux qubit (Bylander et al., 2011) or embedding the transmon qubit in a 3D circuit QED with a high Q factor (Paik et al., 2011; Rigetti et al., 2012), coherence times of SC qubits have been enhanced to around one hundred microseconds.

The multi-mode solution proposed by Richard in 1984 or the more exotic Paik solution [167] have some practical limitations. An obvious way to circumvent this problem is by the use of a set of resonant-mass detectors each of them tuned to a different frequency in such a way to cover a large overall bandwidth.
