Adrian Beckert has shown exceptional motivation and dedication in physics, mathematics and diverse subjects, completing the Matura summa cum laude. A member of the distinguished Swiss Study Foundation, he completed his Master’s degree at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Physics (MSc ETH in Physics) with focus on Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Information and Solid State Physics. Beckert deepened his experience as a research assistant in circuit quantum electrodynamics and superconducting qubits in the group of Andreas Wallraff at ETH. His work included longitudinal qubit-resonator coupling, investigation of qubit decoherence mechanisms and Bell inequality violation, the latter culminating in the successful preparation and execution of ETH’s contribution to the Big Bell Test. Currently, Beckert is pursuing a doctor’s degree in the Quantum Technology group of Gabriel Aeppli at PSI. His research comprises candidate solid-state systems for quantum information processing such as rare-earth (RE) doped crystals and Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy at PSI’s SLS Infrared Beamline to study decoherence mechanisms and RE symmetry properties.
Adrian Beckert’s research focuses on Quantum Systems for Information Technology in Solid State Physics. He explores solid-state systems (RE-doped crystals) potentially capable of being coherently initialized, controlled and read out. He uses the diverse properties of the RE family to investigate their properties in the LiYF host matrix. Beckert’s further interest comprise quantum information processing and the opportunity accruing thereof to investigate fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics such as Bell inequality violation.
