Prof. David N. Jamieson

Professor of Physics, University of Melbourne
BSc (Honours), PhD, UM

Professor Jamieson is in the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne. Following the completion of his PhD in 1985 David spent four years working at Caltech (USA) and the University of Oxford (UK) as a postdoctoral research fellow. He has served as the President of the Australian Institute of Physics and as the convener of the national working group for the Decadal Plan for Physics in Australia which was submitted to the Academy of Science in December 2012. He is a fellow of the Australian Institute of Physics and the Institute of Physics UK. He is also actively involved in physics outreach activities, regularly giving public lectures on fundamental issues in physics.

David’s research expertise is in the field of ion beam physics, particularly in the use of focused ion beams for materials modification and analysis and in the development of quantum computer devices. He has published over 300 papers covering topics including the development of single ion implantation techniques for the deterministic doping of semiconductor devices and for charge injection and transport studies. A key outcome to date, together with his CQC²T collaborators, has been the successful fabrication of nanoscale devices that have demonstrated the control and readout of single electron and nuclear spins. These devices are being used to test some of the key functions of a revolutionary device for quantum computation and communication constructed in silicon at CQC²T.
