General information

Leading scientist's research interests: Low temperature physics, superconductivity, superconductor electronics, quantum coherence, quantum bits (qubits), implementation of quantum computers, nanoelectronics, terahertz generators and detectors

Quote by the head of the laboratory: The mega-grant program helped us very much. Until recently absolutely nothing had been done in our country in the field of superconducting qubits apart from theory. The fact that we can produce and measure qubits in Russia became real only in the couple recent years... We are already conducting experiments with a large number of qubits.
