ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences (http://www.icfo.eu) is offering an engineering position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment. The successful candidate will be part of a newly funded project carried out jointly by the Optoelectronics group led by V. Pruneri, the Experimental quantum optics group led by M. Mitchell and the Quantum information theory group led by A. Acin.
This taught MSc course offers a comprehensive overview of the emerging applications of quantum physics to information processing and quantum coherent devices. The course syllabus includes important topics such as:
- Quantum Information Science. This teaches how quantum phenomena may be used to process information in novel ways that outperform existing information processing technologies.
- Experimental Quantum and Atom Optics. This topic covers the key techniques used to generate and manipulate quantum coherence in real experimental systems.
