Superconducting Technologies

Northwestern researchers are developing new hybrid quantum devices by coupling topological materials to various ferromagnetic and superconducting materials to control spin and heat currents in the quantum limit. In addition, theoretical and computational modeling of these materials inform the design of quantum devices and circuits for transport measurements. These computational studies extend to simulations to characterize the performance of superconducting quantum circuits and qubits.

A partnership with Fermi National Laboratory, the Northwestern-Fermi Center for Applied Physics and Superconducting Technologies (CAPST), is focused on the field of superconductivity at the forefront of accelerator physics, superconducting device technologies, and superconducting microwave cavities for quantum information storage and quantum computing.
