PhD position in multipartite entanglement.

Job type: 
Application deadline: 
Friday, January 18, 2019
Research group: 
National Quantum Information Centre of Gdansk

Requirements:
-M.Sc. degree in physics
-knowledge of quantum mechanics certified by an appropriate exam mark.
-knowledge of English sufficient to read and create scientificc article.
-Interest in quantum information.

Description of tasks:

The project is called "Complex entangled states: production and analysis". It is focused on many-body entangled states, in which nonclassicality is exhibited with subcorrelations, i.e., correlations between subsets of constituents. Tasks performed by the PhD student include
-concept development and studies on novel, subcorrelation-based Bell inequalities
-research on apllication of generalized cluster states in quantum computing and efficiency of such calculations
-research on some error-correcting codes and and optical implementation of stabilizer operator measurements.
-study of self-testing of chosen Bell inequalities
-new methods of recognizing nonclassicality in bright states of light.
-work on demonstrating stabilizer operators
-work on possibilities of realizing and detecting bound entanglement.
