PhD position in Quantum Optics and Quantum Metrology
Application Deadline: Until the position is filled
Start date: 1 October 2018 or 1 February 2019
We are looking for talented and ambitious graduates with Master in Physics
who wish to pursue a Ph.D. in Quantum Optics and Quantum Metrology.
The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Vincenzo
Tamma at the School of Mathematics and Physics and Institute of Cosmology and
Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth, UK and Dr. Frank Narducci at the
Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, USA.
In particular, through an interdisciplinary effort at the interface between
quantum optics, quantum metrology and quantum foundations, this project aims
to theoretically develop novel scalable multiboson interferometric techniques
with realistic photonic and atomic sources for applications in quantum
technologies for high-precision sensing and imaging.
This project will be part of a larger research programme aimed at developing
entirely novel versatile platforms for quantum sensing and quantum computing
based on multiboson interferometry with strong impact in security,
communication, and imaging. Therefore, the PhD student will have the
possibility to be part of a highly interactive research team and she/he will
benefit of an international research environment and of the expertise of
prominent scientists in research areas related with the project at the
interface between quantum optics, quantum metrology, quantum computing and
general relativity. In particular, she/he will also interact with the group
of Dr. Frank Narducci at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey,
California, USA, where the experimental realization of the theoretical
results foreseen in the project will be carried out.
