Project Overview

Numerical Modeling of Superconducting Circuits

Faculty Sponsor

Ken Segall (


Physics and Astronomy


This project invovles performing numerical modeling of the mathematical equations for a superconducting circuit.  It involves running code to solve coupled differential equations on a computer and plotting the results, which will be compared with experiments being done in the laboratory.  This would involve some advanced physics and some computer programming.  Experience with a computer language like Matlab, Igor or Python is preferred. 

Student Qualifications

Physics major up through Physics 334, plus some computational experience

Number of Student Researchers

1 student

Project Length

8 weeks
