11:00am - 12:00pm

What are superconducting and quantum devices? Why are NASA and Jet Propulsion Laboratory interested in them? What are the bottlenecks and how can we overcome them? In this seminar, I will give examples of major materials bottlenecks and explain how different materials scientists can help build quantum limited detectors, superconducting circuit components, and scalable qubits.
