Jonathan Baugh

Faculty, Associate Professor
Jonathan Baugh

Jonathan Baugh is working toward the physical realization of quantum information processors in solid-state systems, using the property of spin to encode and manipulate quantum information.

Past work has focused on solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance devices, and more recently on combined electron-nuclear spin systems and single electron spins in quantum dots.

Prior to joining IQC and the Department of Chemistry in 2007, he spent one year as a Visiting Researcher at the University of Tokyo. He was previously a Post-Doctoral Fellow at IQC, and received a PhD in Physics in 2001 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
