Welcome to the Quantum Electronics Group

group picture 2013

Our research group explores the physics of information in quantum integrated circuits, which we design, realize and measure. These objects can be viewed as quantum machines processing information. In contrast with ordinary circuits, in which quantum mechanics enters only at the level of individual electrons, the degrees of freedom of these machines at the signal level behave according to the laws of quantum mechanics. Topics of our current interest include amplification of quantum signals, manifestations of zero point fluctuations in circuits, quantum feedback and thermodynamics of quantum information.
