Alexey Ustinov

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany

Academic degree and title:
Professor of Experimental Physics Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

Academic positions: Head of the laboratiry "Superconducting metamaterials" NUST "MISIS", Moscow, Russia; Invited professor, Group-Superconducting quantum circuits Russian Quantum Centre, Moscow, Russia.

Scientific interests: Low-temperature physics, Superconductivity, Josephson junctions and arrays, macroscopic quantum coherence, quantum information processing, superconducting qubits, solitons in Josephson transmission lines, microwave spectroscopy, mm- and sub-mm experiments with superconductors.

Scientific advances:  Alexei Ustinov is one of the most famous in the world of experts on long Josephson transition lines and the physics of magnetic soliton waves - nonlinear waves in these structures. He devoted many years to the study of multilayer and discrete Josephson systems, his most cited works were published in these areas. In 2000 Ustinov group has encountered internal localized modes (discrete breathers) in arrays of Josephson contacts. In 2003, his group published in Nature a report about tunneling of Josephson vortex – the largest quantum object detected today. Over the last years the main emphasis in the research Ustinov group was on superconducting qubits. The fastest of the currently registered superconducting qubits with a frequency of coherent oscillations reaching 30 GHz was demonstrated in 2009. The last works of the group in 2010-2011 have been focused on the study of coherent duplex defects in tunnel barriers of Josephson contacts and associated with them hybrid quantum systems.
