  1. 1. Quantum Coherence in the Single Cooper Pair Box

    Författare :Kevin Bladh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :coherent oscillations; single Cooper pair box; quantum coherence; radio frequency single electron transistor; cryogenic filters;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents measurements of quantum coherence in a single Cooper pair box, where quantum oscillations of charge between a reservoir and a small superconducting island have been observed. The single Cooper pair box (SCB) consists of a small metallic island which is connected to a reservoir via a tunnel junction. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The Single Cooper Pair Box - a Quantum-Mechanical Electronic Circuit

    Författare :David Gunnarsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :quantum capacitance; quantum computing; single Cooper-pair box; SET; radio-frequency single-electron-transistor; macroscopic quantum coherence; Qubit;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis the single Cooper pair box (SCB) is investigated with a radio frequency single electron transistor (RF-SET). The RF-SET is used as an electrometer to detect the charge of the SCB. The SCB can be regarded as a quantum two-level system and could therefore be a possible qubit. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Quantum effects in nanoscale Josephson junction circuits

    Författare :Silvia Corlevi; David B. Haviland; Jukka Pekola; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Josephson junctions; Josephson junction arrays; electromagnetic environment; Cooper pair transistor; parity effects; Physics; Fysik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents the results of an experimental study on single-charge effects in nanoscale Josephson junctions and Cooper pair transistors (CPTs). In nanoscale Josephson junctions the charging energy EC becomes significant at sub-Kelvin temperatures and single-charge effects, such as the Coulomb blockade of Cooper pair tunneling, influence the transport properties.

  5. 5. Parity Effects in Single Charge Tunneling

    Författare :Magnus Gisselfält; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :mesoscopic; single charge tunneling; photon-assisted tunneling; shot noise; SET transistor; parity effect; Andreev tunneling; Coulomb blockade;

    Sammanfattning : The subject of this thesis is single charge tunneling effects, especially parity effects, as they are manifested in quantum mechanical tunneling through a metallic island small enough to cause single electrons to block tunneling of other electrons due to Coulomb interaction. When the island is superconducting the ground state energy depends on the parity of the number of electrons on the island: outside of the condensate there will always be at least one electron contributing to the energy for an odd number of electrons and this will have observable consequences.
