Electron Spin Resonance in silicon CMOS spin qubits

Master project, starting early 2021

As a master student, you will develop by nano-fabrication high frequency antenna on top of a CMOS spin qubit coming from the LETI cleanroom to perform electron spin resonance. You will use a dry (no liquid helium) dilution cryostat equipped with a multi-axis superconducting magnet and radio-frequency electronics to characterize the high frequency antenna and conclude on the feasibility of electron spin resonance with CMOS spin qubits. This project can evolve into a PhD thesis project consisting in the realization of quantum operations in CMOS-based device. Find the complete offer here.

Superconducting Devices in Silicon

Master project, starting early 2021

The master internship that can be followed by a PhD thesis, focuses on the development and the study at very low temperature of CMOS compatible superconducting materials. The aim of the project is to fabricate superconducting silicon transistors where the source and drain are superconducting. Various materials can be envisaged such as silicides (PtSi, V3Si) and superconducting boron doped silicon (Si:B) obtained by laser annealing. At longer term, during the PhD, superconducting qubit based on gate tunable Josephson junctions will be investigated. Find the complete offer here.

Ballistic semiconductor-superconductor hybrid devices

Master project, starting early 2021

The master student will join a small experimental team already working on the realization of hybrid devices based on Ge/SiGe heterostructures coming from a collaboration with QuTech (Delft). The goal of the project will be to perform low-temperature magneto-transport measurements to study the strength of the superconducting proximity effect and its dependence on applied magnetic fields. The results of this master project will be used to design more complex devices for a variety of original experiments to be pursued in a following PhD project. Find the complete offer here.

 Heat management in Silicon spin qubits networks

Master project, starting early 2021

This master project, possibly followed by a PhD thesis, will focus on fundamental questions concerning thermal aspects in the novel quantum devices. It will aim at the experimental realization of primary electronic thermometers embedded in a semiconductor qubit architecture. The devices will consist of gate-defined multiple quantum-dot structures, in which one of the quantum dots is used as a local, non-galvanic thermometer.
