I am pleased to invite you to our upcoming UCLQ Visiting Lecture Series talk by Dr Karl Petersson.

Date: Tuesday, 24 February 2015
Time: 4-5pm
Location: Christopher Ingold XLG1 Chemistry LT 

Karl is currently a Marie Curie Fellow at the Center for Quantum Devices, Niels Bohr Institute, Denmark. He received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2009 and carried out postdoctoral work at Princeton University between 2009-2013. His research is focused on quantum coherence in semiconductor nanostructures, hybrid solid state quantum systems and single charge and spin detection techniques.

Talk title: Nanowire-based qubits

Semiconductor nanowires are versatile materials that enable new means of qubit control using electric fields. I will present experiments in which we have developed nanowire-based qubits and integrated them with superconducting microwave cavities for scaling and readout.
