Physics - Colloquium

Circuit quantum electrodynamics, where photons are coherently coupled to artificial atoms built with superconducting circuits, has enabled the investigation and control of macroscopic quantum-mechanical phenomena in superconductors. Hybrid circuits incorporating semiconducting nanowires and other electrostatically-gateable elements into superconducting circuits have broadened the scope of cQED to probing mesoscopic superconductivity. In this talk, I will review recent work on hybrid superconducting circuits and the extension of such circuits for use in magnetic fields.  In particular, I will discuss our work building hybrid transmon and fluxonium qubits based on semiconducting nanowires and their prospects for exploring topological superconductivity.

 

The ZOOM link will be sent on Wednesday morning to the Physics Faculty, Graduate Student, PDRA, and AP mailing lists. If you are not on one of those lists and are interested in attending, please email Suzanne Hallihan at shalliha@illinois.edu for the link.
