Nicolò D'Anna is a PhD student working with Prof. Dr. Gabriel Aeppli in the Quantum Technologies group at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI). His work focuses on low temperature magneto-transport and optical studies of donors in silicon for quantum technologies applications. Prior to his PhD he completed a Bachelor’s degree in physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and a Master’s degree in physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETH). For his Master's thesis he worked on erbium doped silicon devices in Prof. Dr. Sven Rogge's group at the Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology, UNSW Australia.
Solid state physics for semiconductor based quantum technologies. My current interest is electrical and optical investigation of low dimensional dopant structures in semiconductor by using techniques such as low temperature magnetoresistance measurements, Fourier transform infra-red (FTIR) spectroscopy, angle resolved photo-emission spectroscopy (ARPES) and low energy electron diffraction (LEED).
