Microwaves in Quantum Technology

Information processing and sensor technologies based on quantum mechanics are a top-notch research topic today.  In our research area Integrated Quantum Technology, we bundle our physical understanding and the technical expertise of the components and technology concepts required.

In the area of III-V Electronics, we have extensive expertise in electromagnetic field simulations and microwave circuits. We use this know-how to develop dedicated circuits for applications in quantum technology.

Among others, we are currently realizing a planar structure with a double loop to create a three-dimensional atom trap close to the surface. It offers the advantage of high magnetic field gradients with relatively low currents, a compact design and improved (optical) access. This makes them key to the further miniaturization of atom-based quantum sensors.
