Hi! My name is Jean-Claude Besse, and you reached my research website. (Looking for triathlon activities? Head over to my blog, partly in French.)
My research focuses on quantum optics in the microwave regime, engineering gates between itinerant light fields and artificial superconducting atoms.
Prior to joining the Qudev Lab, I worked on cavity optomechanics in the Painter lab at Caltech and on nanomechanical structures for quantum dots coupling with Imamoglu's group at ETH. I obtained a MSc degree in physics from ETH Zurich and a BSc in physics from EPF Lausanne, with an award for the 3rd best GPA overall (best Physics GPA).
