Microwaves have enabled numerous classical technologies, in part because they propagate through air with little energy loss. Using novel approaches, we are working to demonstrate the generation of two or more entangled microwave photons. The photons themselves can be used for quantum communication or can be used on-chip to entangle separated parts of a quantum processor. We are also working toward other milestones, such as using microwaves to demonstrate remote entanglement of qubits. One of our goals is to boost capability for quantum communication, which can lead to a next-generation Internet, and which is a focal point in the quantum space race that has emerged with other nations. We also expect our work to advance the field of quantum computing.
Quantum Information Processing with Molecular Lattices
The aim of the work is to develop theoretical tools to simulate and predict the behaviour of a one-dimensional chain of trapped dipolar molecules and to study the nature of entanglement as a design resource.

Qubits and Quantum Effects in Biology
It is unknown whether biological processes make direct use of quantum effects, as opposed to depending merely on the influence of quantum physics on chemical bonding and molecular structure.

Extensible Technology for a Medium-Scale Superconducting Quantum Processor
Summary Superconducting quantum bits, or qubits, use circuits made from superconducting materials to harness quantum mechanical states. These devices contain many atoms, but can behave as simple, controllable qubits. We are building technologies for the control and measurement of superconducting qubits to enable the first demonstration of an extensible, medium-scale quantum processor. Our approach […]

Line-Scanning optical coherence tomography system for in-vivo, non-invasive imaging of the cellular structure and blood perfusion of biological tissue
Summary Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an optical imaging method that allows for in-vivo, non-invasive imaging of the structure and vasculature of biological tissue. Commercially available, clinical OCT systems utilize point-scanning method to acquire volumetric images over a large surface with typical frame rates of ~ 30 frames/ second. Since living biological tissue is constantly […]
