The tiny device contains an array of 21 coupled optical waveguides and could provide greater insight into quantum interference. Further in the future, the technology could find use in quantum computers.''</p>

A new photonic chip that works on light rather than electricity has been built by an international research team, paving the way for the production of ultra-fast quantum computers with capabilities far beyond today’s devices. Future quantum computers will, for example, be able to pull important information out of the biggest databases almost instantaneously. As the amount of electronic data stored worldwide grows exponentially, the technology will make it easier for people to search with precision for what they want.

One PhD studentship is available at Imperial College London for the theoretical investigation of quantum effects in surface plasmon polaritons / metamaterials. This theoretical investigation is supervised by Professor Myungshik Kim and Professor Stefan Maier. The studentship includes European/UK student fees and full stipend with London weighting during the PhD period.

The studentship is available now until it is filled. If the candidate prefers, they can join the Doctoral Training Programme for Controlled Quantum Dynamics at Imperial College.

We are currently offering a PhD position for motivated people interested in studying experimental quantum optics and quantum communication. The position is in the Group of Applied Physics, led by Profs Nicolas Gisin and Hugo Zbinden, at the <a href="http://www.gapoptic.unige.ch">University of Geneva</a>. The successful candidate can start immediately.
