Dr Rer Nat Paul Baity
- Research Associate (Electronic & Nanoscale Engineering)
Paul Baity started his scientific career at The Georgia Institute of Technology, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Physics, graduating with honour. During his undergraduate studies, he performed research in the Epitaxial Graphene Lab, analysing low-energy electron microscopy and diffraction data of graphene films. His doctoral studies were performed at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory and Florida State University, where he studied the La-214 cuprate family of high-temperature superconductors. This research focused on the interplay of charge, spin, structural, and superconducting orders as observed near thermal and quantum phase transitions at low temperatures and high magnetic fields. His research expertise cover a wide range of condensed matter physics topics but focuses primarily on superconductivity and magnetism. He is currently using these expertise to develop new quantum technologies.
As a member of the Quantum Circuits Group, Dr. Baity’s current research focuses on superconducting circuits, low temperature magnonics, and hybrid quantum systems. In particular, the development of hybrid magnonic-photonic systems at low-temperatures is of particular importance for creating novel quantum technologies. Indeed, such systems are valuable components for development of ultra-compact resonators, flexible, low-loss couplers to qubits, transducers between microwave and optical frequencies, and future information processing technologies for storing, manipulating, or converting data in both classical and quantum regimes. Superconducting circuits, such as photon resonators and qubits, are fabricated at the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre. To assist with integration of the magnonic systems, a valuable collaboration has also been formed with the Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre.
