The most stringent test of the Standard Model using a superconducting quantum device

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Our goal is to couple a quantum-limited superconducting detector (SQUID) to a one-particle quantum cyclotron for the first time.
To accomplish this, we will develop a new superconducting quantum interference device along with a new superconducting magnet and dilution refrigerator and a superconducting magnetic shield.
A sophisticated radio-frequency detection system will be also developed.
Future applications of this system include the most precise measurement of any elementary particle, the most precise test of the fundamental theory of physics, and a new test of the asymmetry of matter and antimatter.
