Dr. Satyen Baindur

I have broad interests in quantum matter, quantum optics and quantum computation.
The links below have a slight emphasis on groups working on superconducting quantum computing (SCQC): the charge, flux & phase qubit implementations with superconductors and Josephson Junctions.They are presented in the hope that they will be found broadly useful, but no claim to comprehensiveness is made.
