The Directed Ion Implantation Program develops processes for top-down directed precision placement of single atoms into silicon devices by ion implantation. Our technique offers a fast-track to arrays of donor qubits for devices in silicon that is compatible with the standard tools of the semiconductor industry. Led by Professor David Jamieson, based at the University of Melbourne, the research focuses on the development of a process-flow of compatible techniques that can produce scaled-up devices of many donor qubits. The Program provides ion implantation for other Centre programs including: Integrated Silicon Nano-Spintronics, Silicon Quantum Hardware, Silicon Qubit Environment and Interface, Quantum Processor Development and Photonic Quantum Processor.
