Thomas Picot

has obtained his PhD degreee on September 22 in Delft. Hans Mooij and Kees Harmans were the promotors.

Upon his arrival in Delft, Thomas has impressed me with his strange views on quantum detection. By “strange” I do not imply “incorrect” or “unconventional”, just “strange”. The impression was so strong as to motivate me for a research project on qubit detection. The project is accomplished but still waits for a write-up, already for years.

Meanwhile Thomas has been working on practical quantum detection. His views have become less strange as to judge from the thesis, the achievements have multiplied. The committee members were most impressed by the revival of swithiching detector Thomas made.

During the defence, we’ve discussed his proposition about working on character, and he’s impressed me once again with razor-sharp definions of the subject.
