Roni Winik received his Ph.D. in nanotechnology and nanoscience at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, where he worked on superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors, semiconductor quantum dots, and weak-link Josephson junctions. In particular, Roni focussed on the generation of pairs of entangled photons emitted from a quantum dot by using superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors.
Before completing his Ph.D., Roni received his B.S. and M.S. in electrical engineering. Later, he worked as an FPGA and algorithm engineer in the Hi-Tech Industry, writing VHDL code, developing communication ASIC chips and advanced electronics.
At MIT, he is working on using FPGAs for high-fidelity superconducting transmon qubit readout, feedback, and control for quantum computing.
