Modelling Superconducting Quantum Devices (2009–2014)

The aim of this proposal is to develop the theoretical understanding of superconducting quantum electronics, which are of fundamental interest as a testbed for quantum mechanics and measurement. They also promise various practical application including in quantum information processors and in high precision sensors. Whilst this project is in part driven by the new experimental capability that will be located at UQ, the aims are theoretical in nature. The aims of this project are: 1. Theory of population inversion in a strongly driven Cooper-Pair Box. 2. Theory of SQUID based circuit frequency modulation. 3. Theory of superconducting measurement using non-linear capacitance. 4. Proposals for superconducting-to-optical interconnects
