The Quantum Photonics Laboratory at Heriot-Watt University seeks a talented and motivated scientist to start a new line of research on quantum technology with stoichiometric rare-earth crystals for quantum memory applications. Significant goals include the characterization of the optical and spin properties of different crystals, optimization of their electronic and spin coherence, and the implementation of quantum memory protocols in both bulk crystals and waveguide structures.
The IQT group at Griffith University (Brisbane) is currently looking for a post-doc starting in 2018. The research project will be on continuous variable quantum information in waveguide. The ideal candidate should have experience in quantum optics and integrated photonics. But a strong background in one of this two area is sufficient. The position is for 2 years and the candidate will be part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (http://www.cqc2t.org/).
We are a research group from Griffith University working on the development of quantum technologies using integrated optics and trapped ions. We are part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology.
Our labs include a fabrication facility for the production of waveguides in lithium niobate and the first chip trap with integrated mirrors
The school is organized in the framework of the PICQUE (Photonic Integrated Compound Quantum Encoding) project and is devoted to students and young researchers looking for applications in quantum information or in the field of quantum optics. The scientific programme foresees tutorial lectures, seminars on scientific results and short talks delivered by young researchers and students.
