Research on defects in semiconductors for quantum information processing


My research focus is on point-defects (vacancies and dopants) in various semiconductors (Si, SiC, Y2O3, …) for material science and quantum information processing. I am interested in searching for the optimal defects and substrates depending on their applications, expending on state-of-the-art understanding of charge, optical and spin properties. Applications includes hybrid spin-mechanical quantum systems, decoherence mitigation, quantum communication, quantum and classical sensing, …
