Quantum controls quantum. Our research is aimed at hybridizing different quantum systems to create new functionalities. For example, a superconducting resonator can hold a photon for a long time, and this photon can be controlled using a superconducting qubit to construct an error-corrected logic qubit. In addition, our team is focusing on trapped electron systems where we can hold their quantum state for an even longer time. The electrons are trapped using a quadrupole electric field, which is widely used as an ion trap, and we can realize a quantum system that is completely isolated from the environment. Because of the electron's low mass, the oscillations of the trapped electron constitute a large electric dipole, which also operates at high speed. The large electric dipole can be coupled with a superconducting qubit, resulting in a hybrid quantum system with even higher performance.
In this way, we not only combine different quantum systems as they are, but also integrate their control technologies and excellent experimental technologies to develop higher-performance quantum technologies.
