Jonas Bylander

Assistant Professor, Microtechnology and Nanoscience, Quantum Device Physics Laboratory, room D419

Jonas Bylander has worked as an Assistant Professor at Chalmers University of Technology since 2013. He worked as a postdoc and then a research scientist at MIT during 2008-2012. He finished his PhD in Physics at Chalmers in 2007.

Jonas teaches one course in quantum optics and quantum information and one hands-on course in nanotechnology.

In his research, Jonas exploits quantum mechanics to develop novel electronic and photonic devices with prospective applications in quantum-enhanced information processing. His group builds nanoscale structures made of superconductors, and performs ultra-sensitive experiments controlling electrons and microwave photons.
