Creating and controlling novel quantum states of matter is at the forefront of modern condensed matter physics. Our research group, the Laboratory for Hybrid Quantum Systems (LHQS), is focused on creating and discovering electronic quantum states of matter in low-dimensional electron systems and controlling tailor-made quantum circuits. In our experiments we put together quantum materials and devices with fundamentally different, but complementary, properties to create hybrid systems that exhibit altogether new physical phenomena or capabilities.

I will discuss our recent invention of hybrid devices coupling high frequency microwaves to two-dimensional electron systems and superconducting quantum bits (qubits). I will also describe our work on a unique low-dimensional hybrid system composed of an ensemble of electrons trapped in two-dimensions above the free surface of a thin film of superfluid helium and coupled to nano-fabricated electric lattices on the substrate underneath the helium.
