Dr. Brett Johnson

Dr Brett C. Johnson is a condensed matter physicist and materials engineer with a particular interest in the electrical and optical properties of defects in semiconductors and their integration into devices for various emerging quantum technologies. He completed his PhD in physics at the University of Melbourne on silicon CMOS processes such as ion-implantation and solid phase epitaxy. After his PhD he worked on the radiation tolerance of silicon carbide with a JSPS fellowship at QST, Takasaki, Japan. In 2013 he joined UniMelb node of CQC2T to work on silicon device characterisation for Si:P based qubit development. Continuing work initiated at QST, he discovered single photon emitters in silicon carbide and developed strategies for their integration into optical and electronic devices. In 2021, he joined QP LABS and is focusing on single photon emitter integration with photonic circuits.
