I joined Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory after finishing my PhD in the Microelectronics Research Centre in the University of Cambridge. This PhD was partly funded by a Hitachi scholarship. My research interests are in the field of silicon nanoelectronics in magnetic fields and in quantum computation. A large part of my role has been to co-ordinate Hitachi's contribution to a large European collaboration known as the AFSID project. This project aims to investigate the properties of novel silicon devices created on a standard CMOS line. More tuneable variations of existing quantum computer designs (Gorman et al, Phys. Rev. Lett. 090502 (2005)) have been built and tested under the AFSID architecture and designs involving multiple barrier-tuneable qubits have been submitted are currently being fabricated. AFSID designs currently being created in collaboration with Hitachi GST in San Jose include novel read-head sensors such as extraordinary magneto resistance devices (EMR).
