Applications: Closed

Learning Objectives: Construction, Materials Engineering, Data Analysis

The semiconductor qubit measurements in Prof. HongWen Jiang’s lab are extremely sensitive to their environment. Our apparatus will focus on reducing acoustic interference and include a measuring device to determine the efficacy of our dampening apparatus. In this project, team members will learn to design and construct an apparatus to reduce the noise from his lab’s helium compressor, and analyze data from Prof. Jiang’s experiment with and without their dampener, to improve their final product.
