Julie TournetJulie was the first student of the MBE Lab. She completed her B.Sc. in Physics and Engineering in Europe (Paris, Brest and Barcelona). Her Master’s project deals with optimizing cleaning and preparation processes of Silicon substrates, epitaxial growth of Al/Si heterostructures and their characterization. 

The structures will serve as a base material for the design of superconducting microwave coplanar waveguide resonators of high quality factor for applications in quantum computing. This project is a collaboration between the Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) lab and the Digital Quantum Matter (DQM) lab in the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC). Other research interests include computational nano-electronics and astronomy. 

Julie is originally from Reunion Island, a beautiful French island located east of Madagascar. She also loves traveling, learning new languages and doing a lot of sports!
