Research

We are working towards the realization of a research-scale quantum computer based on superconducting integrated circuits. Current research directions include:

Fundamental studies of dephasing and dissipation in Josephson-junction qubits PDF

Investigations of excess 1/f magnetic flux noise PDF PDF

Development of quantum-limited microwave amplifiers based on the dc Superconducting QUantum Interference Device (dc SQUID)  PDF .

Other interests include novel readout schemes for Josephson phase qubits, and application of SQUIDs to nuclear magnetic resonance and magnetic resonance imaging in microtesla magnetic fields.
