Postdoctoral Fellowship on Solid-State Quantum Memory with Nuclear Spins - University of Cambridge

Developing a Solid-State Quantum Memory with Nuclear Spins - University of Cambridge

We are seeking postdoctoral candidates with a strong experimental track record in quantum optics with solid-state or atomic systems to participate in our quantum-dot research activities. In particular, the project aims to develop a Solid-State Quantum Memory using Nuclear Spins and to generate Photonic Cluster States in order to address two key elements of developing efficient quantum networks. The research encompassing this post will straddle both fundamental and applied directions including (but not limited to) understanding and controlling the many-body dynamics of the nuclear spin ensemble and their use for information storage in conjunction with photonic cluster state generation.

Quantum Optical Materials and Systems (QOMS) is an experimental research group in Cambridge, UK led by Mete Atature and has a broad research portfolio on quantum science and applications using quantum-optical light-matter interaction in solids. Our current materials of interest comprise semiconductor quantum dots, diamond defects and atomically thin layered materials. The Postdoctoral Fellow joining for this project will enjoy working together with a vibrant team of postdocs and PhD students. More information on the Quantum Optical Materials and Systems Group is available at the group website:
