The School of Mathematics and Physics at UQ holds annual poster competition. Andres Rosario wins the award this year! The poster was dedicated his on-going experimental project for realizing microwave diode with two superconducting qubits. An award also come swith some small funds for future conferences.
In July-August there have been two important events in our group. Andres Rosario has easily passed his confirmation. Anatoly Kulikov who visited us previously in December 2015- February 2016 has been awarded UQ International Scholarship and started his PhD in our lab. Congratulations to Andres and welcome to Anatoly!
Qubits placed in a open waveguide may play a role of mirror for microwave radiation. These are not standard mirrors though as the reflectivity is frequency and power dependent. If there are more than one qubit in a waveguide these properties may give rise interesting effects (for the first experiments with two qubit in a waveguide see this paper). But else they can be good for? Following the idea of Arjan van Loo we can use qubits for drawing pictures!
