Biography

Nationality: Switzerland

Professor-Daniel-LossProfessor Daniel Loss is a pioneer in the theory of spin dynamics and spin coherence in quantum dots showing promise for practical applications in spin quantum computers. The idea is to use the spin rather than the charge of electrons trapped in quantum dots as quantum bits. His work has inspired many important experimental programs. Professor Loss’ contributions open the door to powerful spintronic quantum computers with exceptional speed and storage capacity.
