Research Subject

Microwave quantum optics in 3D cavities

Assigned period

Apr. 1, 2013 -


Imran MAHBOOB received a combined B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree in Theoretical Physics from The University of Sheffield, U.K., in 2001 and Ph.D. degree in Physics studying the electronic properties of nitride semiconductors from The University of Warwick, U.K., in 2004, respectively. He joined NTT Basic Research Laboratories, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation in 2005 as a Research Associate, from 2008 as a Research Specialist, and from 2012 as a Senior Research Scientist. During this period he studied nonlinear dynamics in electromechanical resonators with notable achievements including mechanical memory and logic processors, parametric frequency conversion, parametric mode coupling, all-mechanical phonon-lasing, two-mode squeezed states all using phonons for the first time. He was appointed as Distinguished Scientist of NTT in 2013. Since 2017 he has been engaged in the development of microwave quantum optics for quantum technology applications. He is currently a member of Superconducting Quantum Circuit Research Group. He received the Clarke Prize in Physics from the University of Sheffield in 2001 and the Young Scientist Award at the 2003 Physics of Semiconductors and Interfaces conference. He is a member of the American Physical Society.
