Project Description

Jeremy O'Brien is CEO of PsiQuantum, Professor of Physics and Electrical Engineering at Stanford and Bristol, and director of the Centre for Quantum Photonics. PsiQuantum is using a photonic approach to manufacture a universal quantum computer in a CMOS silicon fab. Jeremy has spent 20 years working towards scalable QC, including: micro-, nano- and atomic- scale design, fabrication and operation of superconducting and semiconductor devices (inc. GaAs quantum dots, P:Si QC, diamond spin qubits); design, construction and operation of cryogenic (mK–300 K) and UHV systems; design, construction and application of dc–GHz low-noise electrical measurement to organic-, super- and semi-conductor (nano)structures (B=0–1000 T); and theory of QC.
