Research in the Painter Lab looks at ways to create new optical materials and devices through the development of nano-scale fabrication techniques and through the exploration of novel physics. The type of research ranges from theory and design, to the fabrication and characterization of devices, and is naturally inter-disciplinary including fields such as quantum optics, nanomechanics, superconducting microwave circuits, and atomic physics. Currently, our research efforts can be divided into the following topical areas: quantum physics of mechanical devices; hybrid superconducting quantum circuits; optomechanical sensors.
Oskar Painter is Head of Quantum Hardware, AWS and John G. Braun Professor of Applied Physics
