Leading researchers work together to develop superconducting quantum devices

Transmon qubit sample used for development of microwave sources

High scientific quality of consortium working on EMRP project MICROPHOTON (EXL03) demonstrated through an impressive publication record.

The ability to build nanoscale electronic devices and operate them at very low temperatures allows scientists to use quantum physics to their advantage in a range of applications, including radiation detection and security imaging. However, progress in superconducting quantum computing technology depends on the availability of chips that can work at the single-photon, or few-photon, level. EMRP project MICRPHOTON 'Measurement and control of single-photon microwave radiation on a chip' aims to develop novel microwave sources and detectors at the single-photon level and improve the performance of cryoelectronic quantum devices. 

The consortium working on MICROPHOTON represents four of Europe’s leading National Metrology Institutes (NMIs), and is supported by Researcher Excellence Grant (REG) partners from four internationally-respected university groups.

Between years 2002 and 2014, the researchers of the consortium have accumulated an impressive publication record, with one paper published in Science, 8 papers in Nature, seven papers in Nature journals such as Nature Physics and Nature Nanotechnology, around 60 papers in Physical Review Letters and two papers in Reviews of Modern Physics.
