Jharna Paul

Dr Jharna Paul is a Research Associate within Quantum Circuits Group at the University of Glasgow. Her research focuses on the wafer-scale nanofabrication of superconducting qubits along with integrated on-chip components for quantum computing applications. Before joining the group, she worked with Quantum Sensors Group on the process-optimisation of waveguide-integrated superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (WSNSPDs) for secure quantum communication applications at telecom wavelength. In 2014, Jharna was awarded with a part-time Daphne-Jackson Trust (DJT) Research Fellowship which focused on understanding the deposition nature of organic molecules onto plasmonic nanoantenna array surfaces. She received her PhD from City University London on Fibre Laser-based Sensor applications.

Paul Baity

Dr. Paul Baity is a post-doctoral research associate in the Quantum Circuits Group (QCG) within the James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow. He earned his doctorate at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (US) studying high-temperature superconductors. His research interests have previously included unconventional superconductivity, thermal and quantum phase transitions, charge, magnetic, and structural ordering in materials, superconducting microwave devices, quantum simulation, and spin-wave dynamics. As a specialist on both superconducting materials and applied superconductivity, Dr. Baity’s role within the QCG and AVaQus program is to perform testing of the superconducting chips and oversee the fabrication of the quantum devices and the development of new materials platforms for quantum computing.
