Miranda Thompson (Fed)

Miranda Thompson is an NRC postdoctoral research associate working in the Quantum Electronics Group. She works on building quantum circuits robust to excess quasiparticles and probing models of quasiparticle recombination. This involves using transition edge sensors (TESs) for active energy removal from silicon substrates and using microwave kinetic inductance detectors (MKIDs) to measure quasiparticle recombination rates. Her graduate school research focused on measuring the current-phase relationship of Josephson junctions with insulating and metallic barriers.
