My group works on the experimental investigation of quantum mechanical properties of sub-micron and micron scaled superconducting devices. In particular superconducting single electron transistors (sSETs) and superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs). We are focusing our attention on gaining a better understanding of how dissipation and the environment affect the states of the devices. We are also working on studying the 1/f noise in Josephson junctions. This 1/f noise may be an intrinsic limitation to the coherence time of superconductor-based qubits.
