Title: Spin physics in carbon nanotube double quantum dots
Mark Buitelaar is a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin research fellow at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge. He received his Ph.D. from Basel University on electron transport in carbon nanotube quantum dots; pioneering work on coupling quantum dot devices to superconductors. He then moved to the Cavendish Laboratory where he performed experiments demonstrating charge pumping in individual carbon nanotubes driven by surface acoustic waves. His current research interests include the study of the spin systems of carbon nanotube and graphene quantum dots, with an emphasis on quantum coherence.
