Microwave Journal Club

The journal club "From superconducting GHz resonators to noise measurements below 4K" takes place weekly Friday 12:00 s.t., seminar room PHY 8.1.09.

Potential topics include, e.g.,

  • microwave resonators, reflectometry, hybrid quantum dot structures
  • nanotube nanomechanics, optomechanics
  • solid-state cavity qed experiments
  • noise in mesoscopic systems
  • finite frequency response of materials
  • time-domain control / measurement
  • quantum information technology

Please feel free to join us and suggest topics and/or papers. While the main focus is experimental, of course also theory contributions are welcome.
