Landry Bretheau

Professor at Ecole Polytechnique, Quantum Physicist and Researcher in the Laboratory of Condensed Matter Physics (PMC*)

Landry Bretheau graduated from Ecole polytechnique in 2005 and then completed his Ph.D. at CEA Saclay. Next, he conducted two successive post-docs at ENS (France) and MIT (USA). Since 2017, he has been building-up a new laboratory – QCMX Lab – together with his colleague Jean-Damien Pillet, which explores the physics of Hybrid Quantum Circuits. To develop this new activity, Landry Bretheau was awarded a Young Team Fellowship from l’X, a Young Researcher Grant from the French National Research Agency and an ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council. His work has led to major contributions in the fields of Mesoscopic Superconductivity and Quantum Circuits and was awarded the X Thesis Award and the 2020 Nicholas Kurti Science Prize. *PMC: a joint research unit CNRS, École Polytechnique - Institut Polytechnique de Paris
