Superconducting Quantum Devices

Group Leaders:

Electrical circuits can be made to behave quantum mechanically, when fabricated from superconductors and operated at microwave frequencies and very low temperatures. This allows them to be used to both study quantum mechanical effects in a uniquely controllable manner, and also to be explored for use in quantum technology.

In our group we are working on electrical circuit implementations of cavity QED in a variety of forms, with electromagnetic and acoustic resonators coupled to superconducting qubits, and other solid state systems such as carbon nanotubes.
