Douglas Bennett is the group leader of the Quantum Electronics group in the Quantum Sensors Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He received his Ph.D. in 2007 from Stony Brook University with a dissertation on “Studies of decoherence in rf-SQUID qubits”. He then joined NIST as a postdoc in 2008. Since joining NIST, he has researched a variety of different low temperature detector technologies, including transition-edge sensor microcalorimeters and microwave SQUID multiplexing. His current research primarily focuses on the how the fundamental behaviors in superconducting devices impact the design of cryogenic and quantum sensors and how superconductivity can be used in the development of scalable low-noise readout of low temperature detectors.
