Laurens Feije (born in Haarlem, the Netherlands 1997) performed both his Bsc and Msc Applied Physics here at the University of Technology Delft. During his master thesis in Ronald Hanson’s group, he focused on actively stabilising an open Fabry-Pérot microcavity to work towards Purcell enhancement of colour centres in diamond. After 6 years of studying physics in Delft, he simply could not get enough and joined Tim Taminiau’s group in 2022 as a PhD student. During his PhD, he will join the Silicon Carbide (SiC) team and will focus on using defects in SiC for Quantum Sensing.
In his spare time, Laurens likes to cycle and tries to stay fit by exercising, the occasional tennis match and boxing lessons. In order to compensate for all the exercise, he loves to cook with/for friends and has a passion for wine.
