Benedict Sukra builds lower-loss microwave cavities at 150 GHz for single-electron qubits used in the electron and positron magnetic moment measurements. The coupling of the cyclotron motion of the single trapped lepton to the cavity in which it is trapped introduces a major systematic in the determination of the electron magnetic moment. Through building lower-loss or higher-Q microwave cavities at 150 GHz, the team will continue to push the precision of the electron magnetic moment measurement.
