Daniel Jirovec


Daniel completed his PhD in Nanoelectronics at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) in 2021 under the supervision of Prof. Georgios Katsaros. His research focused on implementing spin-qubits in SiGe/Ge heterostructures, where he achieved a significant milestone by demonstrating the first singlet-triplet qubit with holes, a departure from the conventional electron-based qubits.

Since September 2022, Daniel has been a member of the research group led by Prof. Lieven Vandersypen at QuTech in Delft. He continues his exploration of Ge as a host material for spins, with a particular emphasis on investigating tuning strategies in artificial spin-ladder systems. With his deep understanding of singlet-triplet qubits, Daniel will greatly contribute to exploring the potential of artificial spin-ladder systems embedded in semiconductor quantum dots. Through his work, he aims to highlight the potential applications of this platform for analogue quantum simulations.
