Speaker Edoardo Charbon who is a Professor of Advanced Quantum Architectures at EPFL. He has consulted with numerous organizations, including Bosch, X-Fab, Texas Instruments and more. He was with Cadence Design Systems as the Architect of the company's initiative on information hiding for intellectual property protection. In 2000, Charbon joined Canesta Inc. as the Chief Architect, where he led the development of wireless 3-D CMOS image sensors. Moreover, he was with Delft University of Technology’s as Chair of VLSI design. He has been the driving force behind the creation of deep-submicron CMOS SPAD technology. His interests span from 3-D vision, LiDAR, FLIM, FCS, NIROT to super-resolution microscopy, time-resolved Raman spectroscopy, and cryo-CMOS circuits and systems for quantum computing. Dr. Charbon is a distinguished visiting scholar of the W. M. Keck Institute for Space at Caltech, a fellow of the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft, a distinguished lecturer of the IEEE Photonics Society, and a fellow of the IEEE.

With the steady growth in the number of qubits being demonstrated in solid-state technologies, so does the demand for scalable classical control to achieve a fault-tolerant quantum computer. We advocate the use of cryogenically operated complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (Cryo-CMOS) technology to achieve compact, fully scalable systems for the control of large arrays of qubits. In the talk, the challenges of designing and operating complex circuits and systems at 4K and below will be outlined, along with preliminary results achieved in the control and read-out of qubits by ad hoc integrated circuits that were optimized to operate at low power to be compatible with standard dilution fridges. Prof. Charbon will conclude with a perspective on the field and its trends.
