Our group focuses on quantum information processing and quantum measurements at low temperatures with superconducting circuits. Our work specialises in the use of parametric techniques for manipulating quantum information in novel ways, including the transfer, amplification, and tomography of quantum states of electromagnetic and electromechanical systems. We are seeking applicants from a wide variety of backgrounds including, but not limited to, quantum optics, microwave engineering, analog and digital electronics, superconducting circuits, and microfabrication. Current opportunities include the study/design of novel schemes for quantum-limited microwave amplification, quantum feedback, qubit gates, quantum state transduction, and qubit fabrication. These efforts are tightly integrated in joint experiments with Ray Simmonds, Jose Aumentado, Katarina Cicak and John Teufel, with an overall emphasis on basic science as well as applications to current worldwide quantum computing efforts.
