Hybrid Quantum Systems

Rapid progress in building devices that exhibit quantum mechanical behavior at larger length, time, and mass scales suggests that new regimes may soon be accessible for quantum computation, communication, and Heisenberg-limited metrology.  We are investigating methods for integrating disparate quantum systems, such as ensembles of atoms and microwave photons, to take best advantage of their good properties while mitigating their intrinsic challenges.  This provides novel possible quantum bits and improved sensing of weak electrical and inertial signals, and may lead the way towards the observation of macroscopic quantum behavior.
