First tenure track at imec promises energy-efficient computing

Christian Haffner, the beneficiary of imec’s first tenure track, pushes the boundaries of quantum photonics to enable highly energy-efficient computing.

Summary

To further excel in groundbreaking technology research, imec launched its own tenure track in 2020.

Winning candidate Christian Haffner has been building his team and ramping up some dedicated facilities. He will now start his exploration towards highly energy-efficient (quantum-)photonics solutions for high-end computing.

The team is still looking for an additional postdoc and around the summer of 2021, imec will launch an open call for an additional tenure track.
