William De Ferranti

William is currently undertaking his Honours project under the supervision of Associate Professor Michael Biercuk at the University of Sydney.

His research aims to redesign well-established classical spectroscopic methods for the quantum regime, in order to analyse and improve the precision of quantum devices. Classical control theory is a broad and diverse field, presenting to us a library of concepts and techniques that we can now extend to the emerging field of Quantum Control.

He hopes that these Slepian functions will provide us with an effective method for analysing the spectral response of quantum systems over a large range of timescales, yielding high resolution narrow band response, as well as broadband noise identification.
