Dr. Vijayaraghavan obtained his PhD from Yale University in 2008. At Yale, he developed a new measurement technique for superconducting quantum bits. He continued work on improving quantum measurements during his postdoctoral work at the University of California, Berkeley which led to the first observation of quantum jumps and the first demonstration of quantum feedback in a solid state quantum system. Since December 2012, he has been the Principal Investigator at the Quantum Measurement and Control Laboratory at TIFR where the main goal is to develop superior quantum processors and develop techniques to stabilize quantum states against decoherence. Some key highlights of this group's work include development of a broadband ultralow noise amplifier for quantum measurements and a novel multi-qubit processor design. He is currently leading several projects to build small scale quantum processors with funding from DRDO, TCS and DST.
