A crossbar network for silicon spin qubits

Menno Veldhorst, QuTech, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands

Menno Veldhorst received his PhD cum laude in 2012 at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. He performed his postdoctoral research at UNSW Sydney, Australia, studying silicon quantum dots in the group of professor Andrew Dzurak. There he demonstrated single- and two-qubit quantum logic with record coherence times for quantum dot based spin qubits, recognised by PhysicsWorld as one of the top-ten breakthroughs in physics in 2015. Menno Veldhorst is now a tenure track team leader at QuTech, Delft University of Technology, and working towards large-scale quantum computation with silicon based spin qubits.  


Cryo-CMOS Electronics for Scalable Quantum Computing

Fabio Sebastiano, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands

Fabio Sebastiano holds degrees from University of Pisa, Italy (B.Sc., 2003 - M.Sc., 2005), from Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, Pisa, Italy (M.Sc., 2006) and from Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands (Ph.D., 2011).

From 2006 to 2013, he was with NXP Semiconductors Research in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, where he conducted research on fully integrated CMOS frequency references, deep-submicron temperature sensors and area-efficient interfaces for magnetic sensors.

In 2013, he joined Delft University of Technology, where he is currently an Assistant Professor. He has authored or co-authored one book, 9 patents, and over 40 technical publications. His main research interests are sensor read-outs, fully-integrated frequency references, and cryogenic electronics for interfacing quantum devices.


CMOS hole spin qubits in silicon

Romain Maurand, Université Grenoble Alpes & CEA INAC-SPSMS, Grenoble, France

Romain Maurand received his PhD in 2011 at the Grenoble Alpes University working at the CNRS Néel Institute in Grenoble, France. He performed his first postdoctoral research at the University of Basel, Swizterland, studying ballistic charge transport in graphene devices in the group of Professor Christian Schönenberger. Since 2014 Romain Maurand is working at CEA Grenoble as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Silvano De Franceschi. His research focuses on leveraging microelectronics technology to realize qubit functionality in CMOS transistors. Recently he demonstrated a first hole spin qubit in a silicon transistor.
