Seminar description:

Using superconducting quantum circuits on silicon chips we make artificial atoms, resonators and waveguides. This "quantum optics on a chip" has become a prospering field of research in recent years. On the one hand, it can be used to study fundamental light-matter coupling similar to traditional quantum optics. On the other hand, these systems provide large potential for solid state based quantum information systems and quantum simulation.

Within the seminar students can give talks on current topics related to solid-state quantum information systems. The seminar is relevant for the special courses on "Superconductivity and Low Temperature Physics". The seminar is suitable for bachelor and master students in the 6. semester and higher. Seminar talks can be given either in English or in German.

List of open topics for seminar talks in WS 2011/2012:

 

  1. Noise Correlations in a flux qubit with tunable tunnel coupling
  2. Quantum State Tomography of an Itinerant Squeezed Microwave Field
  3. Sideband Cooling of micromechanical motion to the quntum ground state
  4. Full-field implementation of a perfect eavesdropper on a quantum cryptography system
  5. Quantum walks of correlated particles
  6. Noise spectroscopy through dynamical decoupling with a superconducting flux qubit
  7. Quantum von Neumann Architecture
  8. Superconducting qubit as a quantum transformer routing entanglement between a microscopic quantum memory and a macroscopic resonator
