F. Joseph Heremans, PhD

Scientist, Argonne National Laboratory

Joseph Heremans is a Staff Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory. Heremans' research focuses on engineering spin systems in diamond, silicon carbide, and other wide bandgap semiconductors for quantum information, nanoscale sensing, and quantum communication applications.

The spin qubit systems that Heremans researches, such as the nitrogen vacancy (NV) center in diamond and the divacancy complexes (VV) in silicon carbide (SiC), offer a wide variation of control techniques as well as sensitivity to local magnetic and electric fields, temperature, and strain. He received his BSE in Computer Engineering and BM in Music Theory from the University of Michigan and PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
