As part of the School of Science and Technology's Joint Seminar Programme for the Engineering and Materials and Computing Informatics Research Centres, Dr Joanne Waldie, University of Cambridge presents: Physics Seminar: Quantum Metrology and the Single Electron Pump

Abstract

A Single-Electron Pump (SEP) emits a single electron per clock cycle at frequency f and therefore generates a quantised current I = ef, where e is the electron charge. We present research that aims to redefine the SI unit of current, the Ampere, in terms of this quantum current standard.

This seminar is hosted by Dr Demos Koutsogeorgis and  Dr Christopher Castleton

All welcome.
