The goal is to develop a fabrication process of microwave resonators with high Tc, high quality factor, robust against magnetic field, et with no stress in the substrate at low temperature.

|Full description: |
The Quantronics group of CEA-Saclay makes quantum superconducting circuits for quantum information processing and to manipulate and detect electronic and nuclear spins implanted in a cristal. Reactive sputtering and etching of niobium titanium nitride (NbTiN) is an appropriate choice for these circuits, given the relatively high Tc of the material, its non too high kinetic inductance, its robustness against static mgnetic field, and the possibility to cancel stress below the circuit at low temperature.
We thus recruit an end-of-course intern with knowledge on materials and thin film fabrication and characterization.
