experimental quantum optics

We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic researcher with an excellent record of publications in the research areas of quantum optics and nano-photonics. The main goal of the research is to develop nano-structured dielectric metasurfaces for tailored transformation and generation of few-photon entangled quantum states. The project work will involve both experimental investigations and theoretical modelling. The initial term is 1-year, with a potential extension subject to performance and availability of external funding.

We are looking for an outstanding applicant with a strong track record for an academic postdoc position with the goal of building hybrid quantum photonic elements. During the last years, quantum optics has received growing attention (including Nobel Prices) for its ability to tailor quantum states in a highly controlled manner. Today, quantum optical systems start to emerge from the lab and start to be ready for real world applications. For these applications it is necessary to be able to build quantum photonic elements.

The selected candidates will work with our established team of physicists and engineers to build our integrated photonic quantum computation platform based on the continuous variable (CV) approach. They will be involved in all aspects of the quantum hardware system at Xanadu’s lab: design of photonic components, construction of the apparatus, and carrying out key experiments. They will also be responsible for writing patents and peer-reviewed publications describing these devices and experiments. Successful applicants will have a proven track record of accomplishments in experimental quantum optics, having developed during their research careers cutting-edge techniques for the generation, control, and detection of non-classical light.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in experimental quantum optics or atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) physics starting Fall 2018. The faculty in LSU’s Quantum Science and Technology (QST) group include Thomas Corbitt, Jonathan Dowling, Hwang Lee, Ravi Rau, Georgios Veronis, and Mark M. Wilde. The group carries out an active research program in quantum optics theory, as well as the quantum optics experimental activity of Corbitt.

Fully-funded Ph.D. or master positions for the Nanotechnology program at Tecnológico de Monterrey, México. The selected candidates will join the Photonics and Mathematical Optics Group (http://optica.mty.itesm.mx/pmog/home.html).

Our research areas are Experimental Quantum Optics, Soliton propagation and nonlinear optics, Beam shaping and optical manipulation.
