Jan van Schoot and David DiVincenzo become first advisors of Orange QS

We are honoured to welcome two impressive advisors to our Advisory Board: Jan van Schoot (right picture, LinkedIn, SPIE) and David DiVincenzo (left picture, Wiki).

We are very pleased to have these bright minds on our team! Their expertise and experience will provide us valuable input on our way to building next-generation diagnostics systems for better quantum chips.

Jan B.P. van Schoot

Director of System Engineering and Technical Expert at ASML

Dr. Jan van Schoot brings his experience with the design and production of complex systems to Orange QS. We’re excited to have his advice on best practices and the stringent technical and operational requirements of the semiconductor industry.

Jan holds over 35 patents and has experienced the growth of ASML from about 1000 employees in 1996 to over 30.000 employees. In 2018, ASML succeeded in making machines that use extreme ultraviolet (EUV) to produce the most advanced microchips (7nm, 5 nm and 3 nm nodes). Today ASML’s lithography technology is fundamental to mass producing semiconductor chips. Jan was deeply involved in the two decades of research required to achieve ASML’s EUV milestone and is currently responsible for the optical train of the next-generation system with high numerical aperture (High-NA). Next to this, he studies high NA system extensions and next generation Lithography systems.

David P. DiVincenzo

Professor at RWTH Aachen, Professor of Electrical Engineering at the TU Delft, Director of the Institute of Theoretical Nanoelectronics at Forschungszentrum Jülich and Co-director of the JARA Institute for Quantum Information

Professor David DiVincenzo is one of the most distinguished scientists in the quantum computing field and helps Orange QS with his insights on the state-of-the-art academic research on quantum information science.

David is famous for his work on the theoretical foundations of quantum computing and quantum information, as well as for his contributions to the development of practical quantum computing technologies. His pioneering research into quantum information has taken him through positions at the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University, and IBM Watson Research Center. David is a Fellow of the American Physical Society (1999) and an Associate editor of Reviews of Modern Physics (2011). In 2010 he was also awarded with the Alexander von Humboldt Professorship, a prestigious German prize for international researchers.
