This PhD project is aimed at developing highly sensitive methods for detection of magnetic fields with optically pumped magnetometers. The magnetometer will be based on laser-interrogation of room-temperature cesium or rubidium atomic vapor. The project will include work on designing a prototype magnetometer. Quantum techniques such as spin-squeezing can be used for improving the magnetic field sensitivity. Possible applications of this magnetometer include measuring bio-magnetic signals from the heart or brain.

We are looking for an outstanding applicant with a strong track record for an academic postdoc position with the goal of building hybrid quantum photonic elements. During the last years, quantum optics has received growing attention (including Nobel Prices) for its ability to tailor quantum states in a highly controlled manner. Today, quantum optical systems start to emerge from the lab and start to be ready for real world applications. For these applications it is necessary to be able to build quantum photonic elements.
