Mark Buitelaar

Dr Buitelaar's research involves understanding and engineering quantum coherence and correlations in carbon-based nanodevices - a novel research direction which is highly relevant to fields as diverse as quantum metrology, spintronics, and quantum information processing.


A new perspective often brings unexpected insights.
