Dr Martin Cyster

Research Fellow

Martin is a postdoctoral researcher who completed his PhD at RMIT University. He applies a range of numerical modelling techniques to simulate the construction and performance of aluminium oxide tunnel junctions. This provides insight into the fabrication process and how material defects in junction impact the operation of superconducting circuits.
