Jarryd Pla is an Electrical Engineer and experimental Physicist, working in the fields of quantum information processing (QIP) and more broadly quantum technologies. He is a former Bragg Gold Medal winner and Marie Curie International Fellow. Jarryd was instrumental in demonstrating the first quantum bits made from the electron or nucleus of a single dopant atom inside a silicon chip. His current research interests span spin-based quantum computation, superconducting quantum circuits (in particular quantum-noise-limited microwave amplifiers) and hybrid quantum technologies. He is focused on developing advanced quantum technologies to aid with the scaling of quantum computers and to substantially improve capabilities in various spectroscopy and sensing techniques.

  • ARC DECRA (2019-2022):
    Superconducting hybrid quantum technologies. This project aims to extend the density and coherence of qubits stored in superconducting-based quantum processors, by exploring the concept of hybrid quantum systems. Quantum computers are expected to impact a diverse range of sectors, from medicine to national security. This project seeks to develop an enabling technology, a memory, for scaling a quantum computer constructed from superconducting circuits, such as those being developed in commercial laboratories. Such scaling would improve the capacity of these processors to tackle complex problems. The quantum technology developed in this project will have immediate application in transforming a widely-used technique for studying the nanoscale structure of biomolecules - distance measurements in electron spin resonance spectroscopy.
  • ARC Discovery Project (2021-2024): Quantum sensing from the bottom up with engineered semiconductor devices. This project aims to develop electronic devices that work as sensors of electromagnetic fields, wherein genuine quantum effects are used to reach unprecedented gains in sensitivity. It combines the significance of unveiling the fundamental limits of quantum-enhanced metrology, with the convenience of doing so in potentially manufacturable semiconductor devices. The expected outcome is a novel, bottom-up understanding of how best to utilize exotic quantum states of matter and fields for metrological advantage. These results will inform the design of the next-generation of extreme quantum sensors, with potential impact ranging from fundamental physics research to applications in mining or defense.
