Sebastian de Graaf
Senior Research Scientist, NPL; Devices Focus Area Team Member, SQMS
Sebastian is interested in a wide range of topics relating to experimental solid state quantum information processing and metrology. This includes superconducting thin-film resonators, hybrid resonator-spin systems, superconducting qubits and detectors, as well as cryogenic scanning probe microscopy and topological insulator materials for metrological applications.
His current work is focused on understanding and eliminating detrimental defects in materials used in quantum computing and sensing that are responsible for noise and decoherence. He is also working on new standards for electrical metrology using coherent quantum phase slips in ultra-narrow superconducting wires, and in the development of coherent scanning probe techniques in the microwave domain for nanoscale characterization of quantum systems.
