Mr. Rohit Navarathna

Rohit Navarathna completed his MSc in Physics from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani. His masters thesis titled "3D Supercondcting Transmon Qubit" was at a superconducting devices lab in the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.
The thesis was intriguing enough that he continued to work in this lab for another year fabricating and testing transmon and Josephson Parametric devices. In October 2018, he joined SQDLab as a PhD student to continue learning about superconducting quantum circuits.


Microwave circulators play an important role in quantum technology based on superconducting circuits. The conventional circulator design, which employs ferrite materials, is bulky and involves strong magnetic fields, rendering it unsuitable for integration on superconducting chips.

Initialization of a qubit in a pure state is a prerequisite for quantum computer operation. Qubits are commonly initialized by cooling to their ground states through passive thermalization or by using active reset protocols.
