Correlated quantum matter and unusual transport phenomena.
In the team Quantum Physics in Circuit (QPC), we explore the quantum phenomena in nano-scale electronic circuits, from correlated electronic matter to quantum transport and down to the most elementary level of the single conduction channel.
Experiments are performed at extremely low temperatures, a few thousandths of Kelvin above absolute zero, with ultra-sensitive measurement setups, on devices made in C2N's large nanofabrication facilities.
QPC is part of the PHYNANO group gathering several frequently interacting teams.
April 2019: Hadrien Duprez obtained one of the two prizes for best oral presentation at the C2N PhD days. Congratulations Hadrien for this pedagogical tour de force!
October 2018: Great Prize Madame Victor Noury of the French Academy of Sciences awarded to Frédéric Pierre.
September 2018: The new paper on the circuit quantum simulation of a Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid appeared in Phys. Rev. X and was highlighted by a Viewpoint in Physics.
August 2018: Zubair's PhD, nominated as an outstanding thesis by Paris-Sud university, was published as a book by Springer.
June 2018: The Science 'Research Article' (long format) on quantum criticality and superballistic transport is now published in its final printed form (also available on arXiv) and has been selected for a CNRS news (French).
May 2018: The paper exploring quantum criticality and superballistic transport with a circuit was put forward in the selective First Release program of Science!
February 2018: The paper on the Coulomb blockade of heat is now published in Nature Physics, and put forward on the cover page.
December 2017: National C'NANO PhD prize attributed to Zubair. Congratulations!
April 2017: European prize Nicholas Kurti awarded to our former postdoc François Parmentier, notably for the noise and quantized heat transport experiments performed in the QPC team. Congratulations!
