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 2012/2013:

  1. Quantum Simulation of Tunneling in Small Systems (see Andrew T. Sornborger, Scientific Reports, 2012)
  2. Hybrid circuit cavity quantum electrodynamics with a micromechanical resonator (see J..-M. Pirkkalainen, arXiv:1207.1637, 2012)
  3. Observation of Entanglement between Itinerant Microwave Photons and a Superconducting Qubit (see C.Eichler, arXiv:1209:0441, 2012)
  4. A Josephson quantum electron pump (see Francesco Giazotto, Nature Physics, 2012)
  5. Josephson junction-embedded transmission-line resonators: from Kerr medium to in-line transmon (see J. Bourassa, Phys. Rev. A, 2012)
  6. Computing prime factors with a Josephson phase qubit quantum processor (see E. Lucero, Nature Physics, 2012)
  7. Stabilizing Rabi oscillations in a superconducting qubit using quantum feedback (see R. Vijay, Nature, 2012)
