Robert Schoelkopf

Robert Schoelkopf is a Sterling Professor of Applied Physics and Physics, and Associate Director of the Yale Institute for Nanoscience and Quantum Engineering.

His group is a leader in the development of solid-state quantum bits (qubits) for quantum computing, and the advancement of their performance to practical levels. Together with his collaborators at Yale, his group created the new field of “circuit quantum electrodynamics,” where quantum information is distributed by microwave signals on wires. His lab has produced many firsts in the field, including the development of a “quantum bus” for information, and the first demonstrations of quantum algorithms and quantum error correction with integrated circuits.

A graduate of Princeton University, Schoelkopf earned his Ph.D. at the California Institute of Technology in 1995. From 1986 to 1988 he was an electrical/cryogenic engineer in the Laboratory for High-Energy Astrophysics at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
