Andreas Wallraff focuses on the experimental investigation of quantum effects in mesoscopic electronic circuits for performing fundamental quantum optics experiments and also for applications in quantum information processing.

His group at ETH Zurich engages in research on micro- and nano-electronics, with a particular focus on hybrid quantum systems combining superconducting electronic circuits with semiconductor quantum dots and individual Rydberg atoms, making use of fast and sensitive microwave techniques at ultra-low temperatures.
