Fields of research
Our research focuses on superconducting quantum circuits.
Josephson junctions have been proven to be reliable building blocks for superconducting quantum memories, high-speed processing units, amplifiers and detectors, operating in the microwave domain. In these types of electrical circuits, which can be manufactured using standard lithography, currents and voltages can exhibit quantum mechanical properties and can be controlled using microwave pulses. This makes them appealing for the study of fundamental quantum phenomena and the implementation of quantum information processing.
We are currently interested in the design and implementation of quantum circuits protected against decoherence.
