I build quantum computers and search for dark matter.
I bake bread, play music, and ride my bike by the lake.

The results of our experiments to make a more sensitive dark matter detector are available in an open access publication at Physical Review Letters 126, 141302. You can read a summary of the work in the Physics magazine. We are looking for a build up of the electromagnetic field (photon) inside of a microwave cavityContinue reading “Searching for dark matter with a superconducting qubit”
Using a quantum bit to search for dark matter I’ve spent the past few months writing about my work developing a sensor that can be employed in state of the art dark matter experiments (check it out here arxiv.org/abs/2008.12231). Here are some of the main ideas from this work and the prospects of this detectorContinue reading “Detecting single units of light”
