Quantum Computer, how to actually build one?

    So last year I took a course in quantum computing, but I didn't understand how can you build quantum computer?

    I mean do you have literature on the technical issues of physically engineering such an apparatus?

    The course I took was really theoretical, but I don't understand yet of how to build such a thing?

    Any literature on applied quantum computing?

    Thanks in advance.

    The last chapter of the book "Fundamentals of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information" by Peter Lambropoulos and David Petrosyan has information about this.
