Professor of Physics University of Melbourne
Program Manager Quantum Measurement
Steven has over 20 years experience in advanced materials science and technology, specialising in the interaction of ion beams with materials. His particular interest has been the fabrication, characterisation and modification of carbon-based materials, including
diamond and buckminsterfullerene. His research strengths include Raman Microscopy, Advanced Scanning Probe Microscopy and Ion Beam Analysis. He joined the University of Melbourne in 1991. He was attracted to join the SRC by the prospect of being able to use his knowledge of materials, ion implantation and scanning probe techniques to fabricate a prototype solid state quantum computer.
Steven was the inaugural director of the Melbourne node of the COE, and now serves on the COE advisory board and IP committee. He is the director of the hybrid opitcal-solid state quantum computing effort whose goal is the use of optical techniques, particularly Raman microscopy, to measure the coupling between phosphorus donors in Silicon.
