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.


Electrically driven electron spin resonance mediated by spin-orbit coupling in a silicon quantum dot

Yann-Michel Niquet, Université Grenoble Alpes & CEA INAC-MEM, Grenoble, France

Yann-Michel Niquet received a PhD degree in physics from the university of Lille, France in 2001. Since December 2003, he is a permanent researcher at the Institute for Nanosciences and Cryogenics (INAC) of the CEA Grenoble, France. He is an expert of electronic structure theory and calculations, from ab initio methods (density functional theory, many-body GW...) to semi-empirical approaches such as tight-binding and effective mass/k.p. He is leading research on the modeling of the electronic, optical and transport properties of semiconductor nanostructures and devices. He is, in particular, now working on the modeling of silicon qubits based on silicon-on-insulator technologies.
