Experiments in hybrid quantum systems

Job type: 


Application deadline: 

Sunday, June 30, 2024

Research group: 

Position summary:

The Quantum Machines Unit seeks to develop hybrid quantum devices – where different types of quantum technologies are married together to build devices with unique functionality e.g. quantum sensors, quantum interfaces, probing the fundamentals of quantum mechanics, novel quantum computing architectures etc. Quantum Machines studied within the Unit can incorporate a wide variety of quantum technological platforms including solid-state, and mechanical quantum systems. In addition to theoretical work the Unit is focused on developing experimental quantum technology based on the preparation of quantum states of motion using magnetic levitation of small objects in vacuum. Such levitated nanoparticles may prove useful for the investigation of macroscopic Schrodinger Cats – which are useful for precision sensing and probing the fundamental links between gravity and quantum mechanics.


We are seeking talented researchers to perform experimental research in the field of hybrid quantum machines. This research is focused on the generation of macroscopic Schrodinger cats using trapped objects – either at room temperature or at cryogenic temperatures. We seek experimentalists with engineering/experimental expertise in any of the following: vacuum, electronic, vibration, optical or magnetic with any expertise in levitation being highly desirable.
