SummaryOur research work is interdisciplinary and explores the interface between condensed matter, atomic physics, optics, quantum optics, nano-science, quantum information, and computing.
We are also studying quantum nano-electronics, quantum devices, nano-mechanics, opto-mechanics, hybrid quantum electro-mechanical systems, and quantum simulators. Particular emphasis is being placed on superconducting Josephson-junction qubits, scalable quantum circuitry and improved designs for their quantum control.
We have also studied transport phenomena (e.g., of vortices, electrons and grains), graphene, solar energy, light-to-electricity conversion, photosynthesis, and artificial photosynthesis.
An underlying theme of our work is to better understand nano-scale quantum systems and devise better methods to control these. We use physical models to make predictions that can be tested experimentally and that can be used to better understand the observed phenomena.
