Collaboration between the NANO group, the Kvantti group, and NIST: M. A. Sillanpää, J. Li, K. Cicak, F. Altomare, J. I. Park, R. W. Simmonds, G. S. Paraoanu, and P. J. Hakonen, Autler-Townes effect in a superconducting three-level system, Phys. Rev. Lett. 103, 193601 (2009). Samples made at NIST:
Measurements/data analysis done at LTL: Circuit parameter determination Rabi oscillation betwen higher excited levels (levels 2 and 1)
Comparison between theory and experiment: (b) is a theoretical simulation of a model which includes cross-couplings and up to the fifth level (solid lines). The dotted line is an analytical result corresponding to a simplified 3-level model with no cross-couplings.
Group structure and changes: PI dr. Sorin Paraoanu 2 Ph.D. students 2008-2009: Khattiya Chalapat and Jian Li 1 Ph.D. student (Khartikeyan S. Kumar) joined the group in sept. 2009 Summer students: Sampo Saarinen (2009) - with Nano group, Mikko Ervasti (2008). PI has spend two months at IQOQI Vienna (Prof. A. Zeilinger) as a Templeton Fellow Infrastructure: cryogenics: design/installation of the tail of the shielded room, the space for fridge, the pumping and gas handling system. S.H.E. still alive but more tests are needed. New can should be tested soon. New high-frequency wiring in progress. electronics: a few major pieces of high-frequency equipment (vector network analyzer, microwave signal generator, waveform generator), others need to be aquired soon (pulse generator, ultrafast data card). electromagnet for materials research: installation done. Changes in the research plan: No significant changes, but shifting of certain priorities occurred.
