Tim Taminiau is team leader at QuTech. He aims to realize spin-based quantum networks for quantum computation and for investigating the fundamentals of quantum information. Tim’s group uses defect centers in solids to realize controlled quantum registers of multiple coupled electron and nuclear spins and connects these registers into optically connected networks using photons.
With these unique controlled quantum systems, the group aims to answer questions such as: How does decoherence emerge in complex quantum systems? Can we protect quantum coherence, in principle, indefinitely so that large-scale quantum computations become possible? And does quantum mechanics continue to accurately describe such extended large-scale quantum systems?
The team is currently looking for enthusiastic students and postdocs. Please contact Tim Taminiau if you are interested.
