« Modernizing equipment for education and research is going to be a top priority as it will help us do more research and projects with the innovative equipment of Zurich Instruments. »
« The UHFLI is probably the most used instrument in our lab. Almost every setup has one because it's just so versatile and so quick to use. »
« A lock-in amplifier offers a convenient way to measure impedance in a continuous flow of water. We can use the impedance change to tell the difference between biological particles - which we hope to see in abundance - and microplastics. »
« The Zurich Instruments QCCS made it possible to set up and start the measurement of qubits very quickly. In particular, the generation of precise high-frequency signals using double-superheterodyne frequency conversion significantly reduced the calibration burden in the qubit readout and control measurement setup. »
« We implemented a characterization method based on asynchronous optical sampling, where the UHFLI Lock-in Amplifier from Zurich Instruments plays an important role. With this technique, we can unravel the intrinsic temporal response of the developed photodetectors in the range of pico- to nanoseconds. »
« We use Zurich Instruments' equipment for low-noise and high-resolution control signal generation and for readout with FPGA-based fast signal processing. If we had to build control electronics on a large scale with similar characteristics, that would distract us from our core research activities. »
« Along with its lock-in amplifiers and impedance analyzers, Zurich Instruments offers brilliant solutions for controlling and measuring quantum processors and is a strong node in the network of actors leading this field. »
