Creating and Controlling Quantum Systems, One Electron at a Time

Johannes Pollanen, assistant professor and Jerry Cowen Chair of Experimental Physics, discusses controlling quantum systems by manipulating one electron at a time as part of his investiture presentation on September 14, 2017.

In his experimental research group at MSU, the Laboratory for Hybrid Quantum Systems (LHQS), Pollanen and his team are exploring the fundamental physics and potential quantum information (QI) applications of low-dimensional electron systems (electrons on helium, graphene, and semiconductor 2d systems) and superconducting circuit-based quantum bits (qubits). Additionally, he is interested in creating hybrid quantum systems by bringing together materials or devices with a variety of interacting degrees of freedom.
