Selected Updates

August 2007

New Josephson junction fabrication facilities: A new multitarget sputtering system with ion mill and oxidation capabilities was recently installed by our group to make Josephson junctions and superconducting thin films.

January 2011

New dilution refrigerator installation: A new Leiden Cryogenics dilution refrigerator was installed, doubling the groups capabilities for millikelvin measurements. In addition to the two dilution refrigerators, the group has helium 3 and helium 4 refrigerators for film or device testing.

November 2019

New refrigerator and project: A new dilution refrigerator just arrived at the lab for new computing experiments on topological fluxons. These particles have been theoretically shown to allow reversible logic gates that

can compute much more efficiently than any irreversible (and conventional) logic gate. Now we will investigate the flux solitons and gate operations experimentally. This can lead to a giant leap forward for cryogenic low-dissipation logic, as well as efficient, computing.
