This thesis describes the measurement of the local magnetic field of a D-Wave Systems Washington generation processor using on-chip multiplexed unshunted DC SQUID magnetometers. These measurements are used in conjunction with passive and active field compensation to minimize the magnetic field present during the superconducting transition of the chip in order to limit the number of magnetic flux lines trapped on chip. This maximizes the operability of the superconducting quantum processor.
