Associate Professor Laucht is a quantum physicist and experimental researcher at UNSW Sydney. He received his PhD from the Technical University of Munich, where he worked in the area of semiconductor nanophotonics at the Walter Schottky Institute and Center for Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials. In 2011, he joined Prof Morello’s group at UNSW Sydney and CQC2T as a postdoc, and in 2017 he received a UNSW Scientia fellowship, securing him an independent position.

Despite coming from a GaAs optics background, Arne has quickly made himself a name in the silicon quantum computing community. As a postdoc in Prof Morello’s group, he made numerous contributions to the progress of quantum computing based on implanted 31P donor spin qubits, including record coherence time measurements, electrical control and dressed qubits. Since 2017, he has shifted his focus towards SiMOS quantum dot spin qubits in close collaboration with Prof Dzurak, providing leadership and expert advice on the design and operation of silicon spin qubit devices and advanced spin control methods. Furthermore, Arne has set up and is managing the Ultra-Low Temperature Optics (ULTO) Laboratory, that allows optical measurements at T < 100 mK.
