Dr. Matthias Mergenthaler is a Research Staff Member in the Semiconductor Quantum Technologies Group at IBM Research Europe - Zurich. His research interests are quantum computing technologies, namely silicon and germanium spin qubits as well as superconducting qubits.

From 2020 to 2023 Matthias held an individual Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship, which he completed at IBM.

Prior to joining IBM in 2018, Matthias was at the Department of Materials & Department of Physics, University of Oxford, UK, where he performed research for his PhD thesis entitled 'Hybrid Circuit QED with Spin Ensembles and Carbon Nanotube-Based Superconducting Qubits'. His main research interest there was the design, fabrication and execution of experiments on carbon nanotube quantum dot devices, superconducting microwave resonators interacting with spin-ensembles and electrostatically defined Josephson junction qubits based on carbon nanotubes.

Matthias holds an M.Sc. in Physics (with distinction) from Imperial College London, UK, for his experimental thesis research entitled “Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics — Towards cooperativity measurements and superscans of a microcavity” and a B.Sc. in Physics from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, Switzerland. He spent a semester as a visiting undergraduate student at Harvard University, USA.
