The project is a joint development between Fondazione Bruno Kessler and University of Trento, in collaboration with University of Bern.
The goal of the activity is to develop a new concept of single photon detector for measuring the spatio-temporal correlations existing in a flux of coincident photons. Such a detector would find application in quantum science, e.g. for the detection of entangled photons in quantum imaging or the generation of quantum random numbers in quantum communication.
One PhD position is available within the Group Physical Foundations of IT-Security at
the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Institute of Optical Sensor Systems in Berlin. The
PhD will be obtained at the Technische Universität Berlin.
We offer one PhD position and one postdoc position at the Institute of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics of the University of Gdańsk. Both openings are in the group of Dr Tomasz Paterek (http://tomasz.paterek.info/physics/) and are supported by the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange. Exemplary topics include: entanglement mediated by gravity, speed of mediated dynamics, bounds on the amount of correlations established via mediator.
