On arXiv: Microkelvin electronics on a pulse-tube cryostat with a gate Coulomb blockade thermometer

Pushing the limits of on-chip temperatures deep into the microkelvin regime would open the door to unprecedented quantum coherence, novel quantum states of matter, and also the discovery of unexpected phenomena. Here, we present a…

Retreat Georg H. Endress Cluster in Valbella

Retreat of the Georg H. Endress Cluster in Valbella with talks of the fellows presenting their research, and a hike on Tue afternoon from Alp Scharmoin climbing 1'055 m to Parpaner Rothorn at 2'896 m. Really nice venue and lots of great…

The European Microkelvin Platform in Europhysics News

The latest (June 2021) issue of the EuroPhysics News features a focus series on Low Temperature Physics with a broad pallette of the many different areas of research, like flavors of ice cream (photo). Christian Enss (Heidelberg), the…

Published in PRL: Isotropic and Anisotropic g-Factor Corrections in GaAs Quantum Dots

The spin splitting defines the energy of the spin qubit and is one of the fundamental properties of a spin in a B-field. Here, we measure and separate the isotropic and anisotropic corrections to the g-factor in two GaAs devices, finding…
ML tuning

On arXiv: Machine Learning Tuning of Silicon and SiGe-based Quantum Devices

Device-to-device variability and disorder in spin qubits makes it currently necessary to individually tune each device in a large-dimensional gate space to find the optimal conditions for qubit operation. We take a key step with a…

BZ Basel Interview and TeleBasel Videoreport on Exclusion of CH from Horizon Europe Program

The recent exclusion of Switzerland from the EU reserach program Horizon Europe has lead to an interview with Dominik appearing in BZ Basel and also on Telebasel. The Lab is also featured nicely on the video, which also shows Omid…

Matura Thesis Presentation Lukas Schenk

From Mon May 31 to Fri, Jun 25, Lukas Schenk from the Gymnasium Thun was working on his Matura Thesis in our laboratory, investigating the quality of various dielectrics via capacitance spectroscopy in special test capacitors which Lukas…

npj Quantum Information: Finding bias triangles with deep reinforcement learning

Deep reinforcement learning is an emerging machine learning approach which can teach a computer to learn from actions and rewards similar to the way humans learn from experience. Here, we use this approach for fully automatic identification…
