We are a team of physicists and mathematicians, located in Paris at Ecole des Mines, Ecole Normale Supérieure and INRIA. We model and build quantum hardware based on superconducting circuits. These qubits provide a hardware-efficient way to develop a quantum computer that is insensitive to environmental fluctuations.
We are always looking for motivated and curious students and postdocs:
One intern/PhD (contact Mazyar).
One intern/PhD or postdoc on quantum control (contact Alain).
One intern on quantum algorithms (contact Alain).
One intern/PhD on GKP theory (contact Pierre).
One postdoc on experimental protected circuits (contact Zaki).
One postdoc on experimental GKP qubits (contact Philippe).
Applications on other topics are also welcome.

We design, fabricate, and measure superconducting circuits to encode and protect quantum information. We are interested in questions like: Can quantum information persist on macroscopic timescales? Can we build circuits with more exotic electronic interactions than Cooper pairing?
We study a new paradigm for encoding, protecting, and manipulating quantum information in a quantum harmonic oscillator (e.g. a high-Q mode of a 3D superconducting cavity) instead of a multi-qubit register. The infinite dimensional Hilbert space of such a system can be used to redundantly encode quantum information.
We develop systematic mathematical methods for dynamical analysis, control, and estimation of composite and open quantum systems. Our subjects of interest range from quantum input-output theory to stabilization by measurement-based quantum feedback.
