The five-day workshop aims to bring together all communities targeted by the COST action QTSpace on Quantum Technologies in Space: atomic clocks, cold atoms, optical quantum technologies, quantum optomechanics, and high-mass matter-wave interferometry. In addition to invited talks on these topics within a space-based setting, opportunities for contributed talks and posters will be created.

We are seeking two highly motivated PhDs students to join our research group in Theoretical Quantum Physics at the LMU Munich. The candidates are expected to have strong analytic skills, ideally with a background in fermionic quantum systems and reduced density matrices. Mathematical Physicists are encouraged to apply as well. Our projects are concerned with the interface of Quantum Information Theory and Quantum Many-Body Physics.

The Quantum Information Group at Lund University, Sweden is advertising a 2 year postdoc position (an additional 2 year extension might be possible).

The Lund Quantum Information Group works with rare earth ion doped crystals. The successful applicant may work with one or several of the following projects:

A) Slow light techniques (few km/s) for medical imaging deep inside tissue enabled by quantum state engineering in rare earth crystals

A recent discovery has shown that it is possible to confine light at length scales much below the conventional diffraction limit in semiconductors. Previously, this was only considered possible in metals through the excitation of plasmons, which unfortunately are associated with large optical losses. This new discovery opens tremendous possibilities for realizing a new regime of strong light-matter interaction, with important applications in quantum technology as well as the “holy grail” of integrating photonics and electronics.

We have open PhD projects within an evolving area of nanophotonics, funded by an ERC Advanced Grant from the European Research Council. The overall goal of the project is to explore, experimentally as well as theoretically, new types of nanophotonic devices based on so-called Fano resonances. These devices have rich and interesting physics, largely unexplored, with the potential to drastically reduce the quantum noise of nanolasers and increase their speed.
