In November 2020, the Institut quantique (IQ) welcomed Lu Chen amongst its postdoctoral fellows. For the next three years, she will be working on experimental condensed matter physics in Professor Louis Taillefer’s group in the Department of Physics. More specifically, Miss Chen will be studying the physical properties of solid-state materials like high temperature superconductors, topological materials, and spin liquids.
To complete her studies in physics at the Université de Sherbrooke, including an international internship and a doctorate in New Mexico, Chloé Bureau-Oxton will defend her thesis on March 25th virtually from the Netherlands, in Europe. Focusing on quantum computing, Chloé investigated singlet-triplet qubits in silicon, a posture with several advantages in quantum systems.
As part of the 2017 edition, physics technician Michael Lacerte submitted a project to design a part called an “interposer”, which serves to avoid the use of microsoldering.
