Dr Cyril Laplane

Cyril graduated from the University of Lyon in 2012 with a Master in Nanoscale Engineering. He then moved to Geneva to do a PhD in the Group of Applied Physics where he developed and studied solid-state quantum memories for light based on rare-earth ion doped solids with application in quantum communication. After a short postdoc to finish his PhD work, he joined the Quantum Material and Application lab led by Thomas Volz at the end of 2017 to work on nanodiamonds optical sorting. Since then he has been expanding his research activities, using optical tweezers in microfluidic chips to study differents nanoparticles in wet environment and developing a new optical trapping setup in vacuum for levitodynamics studies. In July 2020, Dr Laplane was awarded one of the first Sydney Quantum Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship to develop quantum sensors using levitated nanocrystals.
