Prof. Sven Rogge

Scientia Professor of Physics, UNSW Sydney
BSc, Karlsruhe (DE); PhD, Stanford, (US)

After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany, Professor Rogge moved to Stanford University and in 1997 was subsequently awarded his PhD in physics. As a postdoctoral researcher at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, Sven’s research focused on atomic-scale electronics with the two-fold aim of realising quantum electronics in silicon and establishing atomistic-device physics. He eventually headed up the Atomic-Scale Electronics Group at the Kavli Institute for Nanoscience. In 2011 Sven joined CQC2T at UNSW Sydney and in 2014 was awarded a Scientia Professorship in recognition of his research performance.

At the Centre Sven manages the experimental Silicon Qubit Environment and Interface Program which aims to understand the impact of the environment on the orbital and spin properties of qubits, including that of decoherence processes, and establish a photonic interface to spin qubits in silicon. He is well known internationally for his work in quantum information science and technology, most notably in developing an understanding of how qubits in silicon can be manipulated and coupled. Sven developed scanning-tunneling spectroscopy techniques to directly image the quantum state of active donor qubits, revealing their valley degree of freedom, to probe how these qubits couple to each other and their environment. He has made significant advances in understanding the physics of donor and quantum-dot qubits and their quantum applications that lead to more than 130 articles with more than 3000 citations.
