The cold atoms group at the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nottingham, UK, is looking for a motivated experimentalist to join our work on photonic quantum memories. In this project, we will implement elementary quantum operations with collective excitations of an atomic ensemble. By miniaturising ensemble based quantum memories and integration in an atom chip environment, we will explore routes to expand such operations to universal quantum computation with multi-mode memories, best described as holographic quantum computing.
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the University of Nottingham, UK. The Ultracold Atoms Group is the youngest group in the School of Physics and Astronomy. It is part of the Midlands Ultracold Atom Research Centre (MUARC), formed together with the Cold Atoms Group at The University of Birmingham. We started our work in 2008 and now have several laboratory setups with ultra-cold atomic gases.
