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. In addition to his research activities in ion beam physics he chairs the Cooperative Research Program of the International Atomic Energy Agency aimed at the development of new quantum technologies and is involved in physics outreach activities, regularly giving public lectures on fundamental issues in physics.

David’s research expertise in the Centre uses novel ion beam techniques for the development of quantum computer devices. He has published over 300 publications on these and related topics. A key outcome to date, together with his CQC2T collaborators, has been the development of a method to locally enrich silicon with the spin-zero isotope and the integration of an atomic force microscope with an ion implanter that can direct single atoms into nanoscale devices for 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.
