The project Next-generation photonic source to enable quantum remote sensing and communications will use cutting-edge semiconductor device engineering to develop novel, on-demand sources of single photons. These sources will have unique capabilities, such as tunability between one- and two-photon emission, and can be scaled to on-chip arrays. This project also includes Baugh’s co-PIs Dr. Michael Reimer, faculty member at IQC and professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering; Dr. Zbig Wasilewski, a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering; and Dr. Francois Sfigakis, a research associate at IQC; as well as partnerships with Defence Research and Development Canada, the National Research Council Canada, and General Dynamics Land Systems - Canada.

The project Towards large-scale spin qubit quantum computers: simulation, modeling and experiment is led by Dr. Lan Wei, with Baugh and Dr. Youngki Yoon as co-PIs. The project is in partnership with NanoAcademic Technologies Inc. It aims to advance the state of the art in silicon quantum computing devices based on electron spin qubits.

Annelise successfully defended her thesis, entitled “Development of III-V Semiconductor Surface Quantum Wells for Hybrid Superconducting Device Applications”, on Jan. 23, 2024. Congratulations Annelise!

Annelise’s work has focused on the development of InAs and InSb two-dimensional electron gas systems as platforms for topological qubits. She has worked in close collaboration with the QNC-MBE group of Prof. Wasilewski and with Dr. Francois Sfigakis in our group. Her original contributions have resulted in a first-author publication in Appl. Phys. Lett. 122, 012103 (2023) as well as another forthcoming paper.
