Max Hays is a postdoctoral fellow in the Engineering Quantum Systems Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received his PhD from Yale University in 2020, where he investigated quasiparticle dynamics in superconducting circuits. Before Yale, Hays graduated with a BS in physics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His current research focus is on error correction and protected qubits in superconducting circuits.


Informing Potential Remedies for Quasiparticle Poisoning

Measurements of the temperature distribution of quasiparticles in superconducting circuits reveal behavior that could inform strategies for mitigating quasiparticle-induced errors in superconducting qubits. Read More »
