Luca Planat is the CEO of Silent Waves, a deeptech company based in Grenoble, developing and commercialising readout hardware for quantum computing. Luca Planat owns an engineer degree (2016) from Grenoble INP Phelma and did a PhD in quantum physics between 2016 and 2020 at the Institut Néel, Grenoble, France. During his PhD, he focused on the development of wideband, quantum limited, microwave amplifiers. These amplifiers are key pillars for large-scale quantum processor readout since they provide very high signal noise ratio for qubit readout over several gigahertz bandwidth. Early 2022, Luca Planat has co-founded Silent Waves, together with his former PhD supervisor, Nicolas Roch, and his brother, Baptiste Planat.
