    Abstract : This thesis presents the results of the experimental studies on two kindof Superconducting circuits: one-dimensional Josephson junction chains andsuperconducting coplanar waveguide (CPW) resonators. One-dimensionalJosephson junction chains are constructed by connecting many Superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs) in series. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tunable superconducting transmissionline resonator for qubit coupling

    Author : Martin Sandberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fast tuning; superconductivity; transmission line; SCB; Josephson inductance.; Frequency tunable resonator; SQUID; CPW; aluminium;

    Abstract : In this licentiate thesis design, fabrication, and measurements of tunable superconducting microwave transmission line resonators are described. The resonators are of quarter wavelength type were the tuning is achieved by changing one of the boundary conditions of the resonator through a tunable impedance. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Josephson parametric oscillator - From microscopic studies to single-shot qubit readout

    Author : Philip Krantz; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; resonators; Superconducting circuits; parametric oscillators; quantum bit; quantum information; SQUID; pumpistor; Josephson junction; circuit quantum electrodynamics;

    Abstract : Circuit quantum electrodynamics (cQED) is a prominent platform for quantum information processing, in which microwave photons are confined into resonant cavities coupled to superconducting quantum bits (qubits). The large effective dipole moment of the qubit, in combination with the high energy density of the quasi 1-D resonator allow these systems to enter the so-called strong coupling regime. READ MORE

  5. 5. High-temperature superconducting magnetometers for on-scalp MEG

    Abstract : In the growing field of on-scalp magnetoencephalography (MEG), brain activity is studied by non-invasively mapping the magnetic fields generated by neuronal currents with sensors that are flexibly placed in close proximity to the subject's head. This thesis focuses on high-temperature superconducting magnetometers made from YBa2Cu3Ox-7 (YBCO), which enables a reduction in the sensor-to-room temperature standoff distance from roughly 2 cm (for conventional MEG systems) down to 1 mm.
