Quantum computation is the man on the moon goal of the current second quantum revolution. How will we get there? Join us in our mission to turn everyday silicon into the quantum computing wonder material! To make this dream come true, we have partnered with the leading semiconductor industry towards high volume manufacturing of Si qubits. The aim of this PhD is to tackle key material challenges relevant for qubit operation, such as understanding and engineering valley splitting in Si quantum wells. This is crucial for obtaining high-fidelity qubits for higher temperature operation. Specifically you will design Si quantum wells, fabricate devices, and measure their electrical properties at low temperature and high magnetic field.
