Towards Realizing a Quantum Memory for a Superconducting Qubit: Storage and Retrieval of quantum states


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" and "Applied Superconductivity". 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 2013/2014:

  1. Giant Cross Kerr Effect for Propagating Microwaves Induced by an Artificial Atom (see Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 053601 (2013))
  2. Microwave-controlled generation of shaped single photons in circuit quantum electrodynamics (see arXiv:1308.4094)
  3. Nonequilibrium and nonperturbative dynamics of ultrastrong coupling in open lines (see arXiv:1307.3870)
  4. Nonlinear optics quantum computing with circuit QED (see Phys. Rev. Lett. 110, 060503 (2013))
  5. Towards Realizing a Quantum Memory for a Superconducting Qubit: Storage and Retrieval of quantum states (see arXiv:1308.5130)
  6. Dc SQUID coupled to mechanical oscillator (see Nature Physics 4, 785 (2008))
  7. Observation of quantum state collapse and revival due to the single-photon Kerr effect (see Nature 495, 205 (2013))
  8. Electron spin resonance detected by a superconducting qubit (see Phys. Rev. B 86, 064514 (2012))
