Biographical Sketch: 

Devoret’s research focuses on experimental solid state physics with emphasis on “quantronics,” i.e., mesoscopic electronic effects in which collective degrees of freedom like currents and voltages behave quantum mechanically; investigations of quantum coherence in single Cooper pair devices for quantum computation and metrology; superconductivity at the single molecule level; amplification, information and noise in mesoscopic systems.
