Abstract:

The funding provided by this grant was used to purchase an Integra AC recondensing cryostat from Oxford Instruments. Acquisition of this piece of equipment has been instrumental in allowing us accelerate our efforts to develop cavity-embedded Cooper pair transistors for ultra sensitive charge detection of quantum systems such as quantum dots and nanomechanical resonators. It has done so in two ways by significantly reducing our operating costs, and by allowing us to run two dilution refrigerator systems in parallel.
