Group Leader

Uri Vool

Uri is a condensed matter and quantum information physicist working on quantum sensing and hybrid quantum devices

Uri was born in Donetsk, Ukraine and grew up in Jerusalem, Israel. He completed his Ph.D. at Yale University, working in the lab of Professor Michel Devoret and conducting theoretical research with Professor Steven Girvin. Uri's graduate work explored the different kinds of artificial atoms accessible using superconducting circuits. As a John Harvard distinguished science fellow at Harvard University, Uri worked with Professor Amir Yacoby on quantum scanning magnetometry with nitrogen-vacancy centers and the use of quantum information techniques to study condensed matter properties. Uri is currently a Max Planck Research Group (MPRG) leader at the MPI-CPfS, leading the Quantum Information for Quantum Materials (QIQM) group.
Post-doctoral Researcher

Po-Ya Yang

Po-Ya is an experimental condensed-matter physicist working on hybrid superconducting circuits

Po-Ya was born in Taipei and grew up in Taichung, Taiwan. He finished his Ph.D. at Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden) and International Max Planck Research School for Chemistry and Physics of Quantum Materials (IMPRS-CPQM), working in Professor Andrew P. Mackenzie’s lab and doing experimental condensed-matter research with Dr. Clifford W. Hicks. During the doctoral research, Po-Ya’s developed new techniques combining focused ion beam (FIB) etching and novel uniaxial stress methods for the transport measurements on microstructured unconventional superconductors under uniaxial pressure. Po-Ya is currently a post-doctoral research scientist working on circuit quantum electrodynamics hybrid devices.
Post-doctoral Researcher

Young-Gwan Choi

Young-Gwan is an experimental condensed-matter physicist working on NV scanning magnetometry

Young-Gwan was born and grew up in South Korea. He completed his M.S. degree at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), working in the lab of Professor Jong-Seok Lee and completed his Ph.D. at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU), working in the lab of Professor Gyung-Min Choi. He studied various quantum phenomena, e.g. spin/orbital Hall effects, topological effects, heat transport, and so on, in condensed matter systems using laser-based optical technique. Young-Gwan is currently a postdoctoral researcher working on the nitrogen-vacancy scanning technique.
Ph.D candidate

Haolin Jin

Haolin Jin is an experimental condensed matter student working on hybrid structures with 2D superconducting materials.

Haolin Jin was born in Shaoxin and grew up in Shenzhen, China. He obtained his bachlor's and master's degree at the South China University of Technology (SCUT), working in Professor Xi Chen's group and doing high pressure experiments through the Diamond anvil cell (DAC) method on different materials. He is familiar with using microscopes, Physics Property Measurement System, Raman spectroscopy and so on. Haolin is currently working on fabricating hybrid superconducting circuits with two-dimensional superconducting materials as a Ph.D candidate.
