Project description
In this project, work continues on the development of an ultra-sensitive spectrum analyzer for microwaves. Our goal hinges on the integration of cryogenic tunable microwave filters into microwave detector circuits. We have now fabricated and tested proof-of-concept filters. Based on these tests, we will improve the tunability and frequency allocation of the filters. This Key Project has fostered direct interaction, and a new network, between Aalto and small- to medium-sized high tech companies to support a broader commercial effort to build the tools required for societal utilization of quantum technology.
