Our group focuses on quantum information, measurement, and parametric coupling, mostly at low temperatures, mostly using superconducting circuits. Our work specifically focuses on the use of parametric techniques for manipulating quantum information in novel ways, including the transfer, amplification, and tomography of quantum states of electromagnetic and electromechanical systems. We are seeking applicants from a wide variety of backgrounds including, but not limited to, quantum optics, microwave engineering, analog and digital electronics, digital communication, and microfabrication. Current opportunities include the study/design of novel amplifiers, quantum state synthesis, and quantum state transduction. Our efforts are tightly integrated in joint experiments with Ray Simmonds and John Teufel.
