Laurens H. Willems van Beveren

Senior Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Solid-state Physics, The University of Melbourne

Laurens is currently working as senior research fellow in the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne. He is affiliated to the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T) and is leading the quantum measurement program, focusing on low-temperature, low-noise electronic characterization of several solid-state device architectures, involving silicon and diamond semiconductors. His interest goes out to the interplay of quantum electronics and the optical properties of these devices, which can be suitably studied in the recently commissioned cryogen-free dilution refrigerator from Leiden Cryogenics which cools down samples to 10 mK (base temperature).
