The QCT group visits Can Franc

Members of the QCT group at IFAE visited the Canfranc underground laboratory last week to perform the installation of cryogenic cabling in the dilution refrigerator of the CROSS experiment.

This work is part of a new project in the Quantum Computing Technologies group to carry out qubit measurements in underground conditions with low environmental and cosmic ray radiation.

Pol Forn participated in the Scientific Committee of the LSC Can Franc to present the work done by the group.
