About Jean-Claude Besse


Hi! My name is Jean-Claude Besse, and you reached my research website.

Short Bio

Since 2016 I work in the Quantum Device Lab, in the Department of Physics, at ETH Z├╝rich.

Currently, as a PostDoc, I focus on the fabrication of large-scale quantum circuits within the ETH Zurich - PSI quantum computing hub.

From 2016 to 2021, my research was centered around quantum optics in the microwave regime, engineering gates between itinerant light fields and artificial superconducting atoms. This resulted in my PhD thesis intitulated "Generation, Manipulation, and Detection of Complex States of Microwave Radiation".

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 2nd best GPA overall (best Physics GPA).
