Hands-on Superconducting Qubit Characterization

Hands-on Superconducting Qubit Characterization | Zurich Instruments Webinar
November 22nd, 2022
17:00 - 18:00 CET / 11:00 - 12:00 EST

Would you like to start qubit measurements, but don’t know how? Do you already do qubit measurements, but would like to learn tips and tricks to simplify and speed them up?

This webinar introduces essential methods used in superconducting qubit characterization: qubit spectroscopy, single-shot readout, and Rabi oscillation measurements. Through tutorials and demonstrations, we lead you from theory to practical, experimental measurements carried out on a real qubits in a dilution refrigerator. The webinar brings together device physics, instrumentation know-how, and software, all essential to realize state-of-the-art quantum experiments.

Measure and Generate Periodic Microwave Signals: The GHFLI and SHFLI Launch Event

Measure and Generate Periodic Microwave Signals I Zurich Instruments Webinar
October 6th, 2022

As the trend towards smaller devices and higher frequencies continues, faster reliable measurements become more and more important. The GHFLI and SHFLI Microwave Lock-in Amplifiers combine the measurement speed and high noise rejection of lock-in amplifiers with a full microwave measurement suite making them ideal solutions for scientists and engineers working at these frequencies.

This virtual launch event included a presentation of the instruments, a practical demonstration and live Q&A sessions. Read our blog post for the summary of the event and answers to the questions from the live audience.

DLTS User Meeting 2022

Zurich Instruments DLTS User Meeting 2022
July 12th, 2022
Speakers: Zurich Instruments team, and hosted by Magdalena Marszalek

Deep level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) is a critical tool for the characterization of semiconductors. In this second edition of the DLTS User Meeting, Zurich Instruments brought together members of the DLTS community, to foster knowledge exchange and to network through scientific talks on the study of defects in Sb2(SSe)3, and in metal halide perovskite solar cells. Detailed tutorials also covered the study of transients and data acquisition. To read the answers to the questions during the live event, take a look at this blog post. To discuss your DLTS challenge, get in touch with Dino Klotz or Meng Li.

From Charge Dynamics in Solids to Single-Molecule Spectroscopy with SPM

From Charge Dynamics in Solids to Single-Molecule Spectroscopy with SPM I Zurich Instruments Webinar
April 28th, 2022
Speakers: Romain Stomp

In this video, Prof. Peter Grutter provides an overview of his current research aimed at developing ultrafast laser methods combined with AFM to gain a better understanding of charge dynamics at the molecular time and length scales. He then presents his most recent results on mechanically detecting single electrons for single-molecule spectroscopy. The outlook of his talk addresses plans to adapt these methods to elucidate the energetics of organic charge transfer systems as well as the quantum properties of single and coupled dopants in silicon. Following Prof. Grutter's talk, Application Scientist Romain Stomp illustrates how the discussed methods can be implemented with Zurich Instruments' rich toolbox. The answers to the questions asked during the live event are summarized in this blog post.

Interfaces: How They Make or Break a Nanodevice

Interfaces: How They Make or Break a Nanodevice | Zurich Instruments Webinar
March 29th, 2022

As the size of electronic devices goes down to few nanometers, interfaces become increasingly relevant and often dominate and interfere with a device's performance. Hybrid devices are a particularly good example, because they rely on interfacing materials with different physical properties to control superconductivity, spin or other carrier characteristics in the active parts of the device. The performance of these structures depends critically on their reliable fabrication and interface characterization. In this webinar, Jelena Trbovic and Heidi Potts take you from general interface considerations to nanodevice characterization with lock-in amplifiers: you learn how to set up low-noise measurements and how to characterize devices on ultrafast timescales using RF reflectometry. The answers to the questions asked during the live event are summarized in this blog post.
