    Daniel Riedel

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Electrical Engineering

    BioDaniel is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University working on the integration of optically active spin defect centers in diamond into photonic networks in the Nanoscale and Quantum Photonics Lab lead by Prof. Jelena Vuckovic.

    Daniel's research focuses on the investigation of color centers in silicon carbide (SiC) and diamond and to study their synergies with various photonic platforms with the goal to create scalable building blocks of a quantum network operating at liquid helium temperature. He received his MSc in Physics with distinction in 2012 from University of Wurzburg in Germany and his PhD in Physics summa cum laude in 2017 from University of Basel. Before joining Stanford Daniel worked as a postdoc at California Institute of Technology on developing hybrid photonic networks for the integration of rare earth dopants in complex oxides (2019-2020).

    For his pioneering PhD research on coupling nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond to tunable microcavities, Daniel received several awards, e.g. from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Swiss Micro- and Nanotechnology Network and was invited to present at International conferences (e.g. SPIE in San Diego, CLEO Pacific Rim in Hong Kong). His postdoctoral research has been supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation with two subsequent grants.
