Spin-NANO welcomes Yanick Volpez

posted Oct 18, 2016, 4:47 AM by Sally A Greenhough

Yanick joins the Condensed Matter Theory and Quantum Computing Group of the University of Basel.  He will work on theoretical understanding of spin qubits in Si-Ge nano-structures and bi-layer graphene/BN quantum dots at UB (graphene work jointly with UKON, with whom previous joint activities on graphene nano-structures exist); work closely with UCPH on Ge/Si nanowires, TUD on planar Si-Ge structures and ETH on graphene/BN quantum dots; visit Urenco to receive induction in the isotope enrichment processes in order to gain understanding of the material properties (to be applied for theory of Si-Ge nano-structures).
