Superconducting quantum circuits are artificial structures with a possibility to design and engineer their key properties. These unique features have made these engineered systems to be one of the most promising candidates for realizing a quantum computer in solid state, have allowed for exploration of quantum optical phenomena on-chip and have facilitated the implementation of a quantum control of a nanomechanical degree of freedom.
Superconducting Quantum Devices Laboratory aims at establishing fabrication and measurement techniques for the next generation of superconducting nanodevices consisting of superconducting qubits or artificial atoms, microwave transmission lines and high quality superconducting resonators.
By using strong coupling strength between single microwave photon and a superconducting qubit in these networks, one can realize a plethora of novel light-matter interaction regimes. In addition, superconducting circuits can integrate nanomechanical quantum devices opening avenues for quantum control of mechanical degree of freedom.
The laboratory enables ultra-low noise electronic measurements at millikelvin temperatures and contains an Oxford instruments DR200 dilution refrigerator and a complete set of test and measurement microwave equipment.
