Sebastian received his PhD in experimental mesoscopic physics from Chalmers University of Technology in 2014. He has since worked at NPL in the Quantum Detection team.
Areas of interest
Sebastian is interested in a wide range of topics relating to experimental solid state quantum information processing and metrology. This includes superconducting thin-film resonators, hybrid resonator-spin systems, superconducting qubits and detectors, as well as cryogenic scanning probe microscopy and topological insulator materials for metrological applications.
His current work is focused on understanding and eliminating detrimental defects in materials used in quantum computing and sensing that are responsible for noise and decoherence. He is also working on new standards for electrical metrology using coherent quantum phase slips in ultra-narrow superconducting wires, and in the development of coherent scanning probe techniques in the microwave domain for nanoscale characterisation of quantum systems.
