PhD Positions in Nonlinear Quantum Optics Using Rydberg Superatoms at SDU

One project involves the realization of strong photon-photon interactions mediated by ultracold Rydberg atoms with the aim of implementing key building blocks for all-optical quantum information processing. The candidate is expected to take a leading role in the project team working on this topic, including the development of all required experiment components. The project is conducted in close collaboration with theory groups in Stuttgart, Germany and Aarhus, Denmark. The candidate is expected to work directly with these collaborators on the development of the required theory and the joint analysis of all experimental data.

The second project involves the realization of a strongly coupled system of Rydberg superatoms with the aim of generating entanglement between individual superatoms and single photons. The candidate is expected to lead the experimental realization of this novel system, including the development of all required experiment components. The project is conducted in close collaboration with theory groups in Stuttgart, Germany and Aarhus, Denmark. The candidate is expected to work directly with these collaborators on the development of the required theory and the joint analysis of all experimental data.

The applicants must have a strong background in quantum optics and atomic physics, such as an MSc in physics (5+3 programme) or a BSc with one year of MSc studies (4+4 programme, i.e. be enrolled in such a Master's degree programme for at least a year). If  candidates apply through the 4+4 programme, then documentation for courses corresponding to 60 ECTS on the Master's level education must be included.

The applicants are expected to have experience with experimental techniques such as ultracold atom preparation, single-photon detection, and Rydberg atom spectroscopy. Ideally, the applicants should have passed a master-level advanced course in modern atomic physics, quantum optics or equivalent. These requirements must be clearly documented in the submitted CV, otherwise the application will not be considered. The candidates should be independent and able to communicate fluently in English, as well as possess good interpersonal skills.

The expected start date is between 1 September 2018 and 1 October 2018.

Application deadline: 1 July 2018.
