We use cryogenic systems to cool our electronic devices to close to absolute zero of temperature. The photograph shows a detail of one of our setups.
Circuit QED Device
We investigate the quantum physical properties of electronic circuits. The photograph shows a chip made in our labs at ETH and mounted in a printed circuit board to investigate the interaction of individual photons with individual qubits.

Research is done by an international team including PostDocs PhD and undergraduate students. The lab is supported by a project manager, technicians and a secretary.
