Our experiment results on implementation of a non-recprocal device based on superconducting non-linearity appreared in Physical Review Letters. Congratulation to our team experimentalists and theorists from Australia and Europe!
Alejandro Gómez Frieiro has joined our group as an occupational trainee. Alejandro graduated from the University of Santiago de Compostela and spent a year in the Umea University thtough the Erasmus+ exchange program. Welcome to the group!
With some delay we welcome Daniel as new group member! Daniel has graduated from Delft University of Technology, Netherlands where he specialized in low temperature superconducting and semiconducting quantum physics. We all hope Daniel will have a smooth start at UQ.
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!
