As superconducting quantum circuits grow in size and complexity, a number of unwanted effects arise which limit architecture scalability. Multilayer quantum circuits have the potential to solve many of these issues. In this seminar, we will examine an addition to the multilayer quantum circuit toolbox: the technique of indium thin film thermocompression bonding. We will characterize this technique as applied to tunnel-capped superconducting quantum devices. We will also explore the characterization of aluminium/indium and indium thin films using the two level system loss model.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
