ResearchWe 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.
