About the Speaker

In 2022, Christopher Eichler joined the Physics Department at FAU Erlangen as a Full Professor. Previously, he was a tenured Senior Scientist at ETH Zurich, where he led the Quantum Optics and Quantum Computing research in the Qudev Lab. Important achievements include the recent realization of a distance-three surface code, which is considered an important step towards fault-tolerant quantum computing. For his PhD research on the characterization of microwave fields at the single-photon level, he was awarded an ETH medal. During his postdoctoral research as a Dicke fellow at Princeton University, he studied hybrid systems, in which superconducting circuits interact with spins and electrons confined in quantum dots.

Christopher Eichler and his team strive to advance research and education in quantum science and technology. Experimental activities are primarily based on superconducting circuit devices, one of today’s leading platforms for building quantum information processing devices.
