The Trapped Ion Quantum Technology group at Stockholm University invites applications for a PhD position to work on cryogenic chip traps for quantum computing with trapped Rydberg ions. The position is funded through the project ‘Brisk Rydberg Ions for Scalable Quantum Processors’ (BRISQ) which is financed by the European Union.
The project goals are the following:
(i) To design and set up a cryogenic system for testing and operating chip traps suitable for Rydberg ion quantum computation.
(ii) To perform and characterise protocols for fast and high-fidelity entangling gates using Rydberg states of trapped ions.
Chip traps and gate protocols will be developed in collaboration with the industrial and academic project partners within BRISQ (located in Austria, Germany and Sweden).
The experimental PhD project will take place in the Trapped Ion Quantum Technology group at Stockholm University. For more information please visit our group website and/or contact Assoc. Prof. Markus Hennrich, email@example.com.
