Our research group explores the physics of information in quantum devices, which we design, realize and measure. These objects can be viewed as quantum machines processing information. In contrast with ordinary devices, in which quantum mechanics enters only at the level of individual electrons, the degrees of freedom of these machines at the signal level behave according to the laws of quantum mechanics.
Topics of our current interest include amplification of quantum signals, electron spin resonance at the nanoscale, quantum feedback and trajectory, thermodynamics of quantum information, microwave quantum optics, quantum error correction and quantum measurement.
The Quantum Circuit group was funded in 2016 when Benjamin Huard became professor in Ecole Normale Supérieure of Lyon, therefore leaving the Quantum Electronics Group he cofunded in 2008 with Michel Devoret at Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris. Audrey Bienfait joined the group late in 2019 as a CNRS researcher.
We are looking for post-docs, contact us if you're interested!
We are also looking for a junior research leader to work on new paradigms in cat qubits. This position is in the context of the project RobustSuperQ of France 2030. Please apply before November 7, 2022 if interested.
