STOCKHOLM UNIVERSITY, DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS
We are searching for a talented and motivated PhD student who is interested in experimental quantum optics and quantum information with trapped ions. The research will focus on the investigation of trapped strontium Rydberg ions.
Trapped Rydberg ions are a novel system for quantum technologies. By laser light, the ions’ outermost electrons are excited to high-lying orbitals. Such Rydberg ions are million times bigger than ions in the ground state, and due to their size, they obtain very peculiar properties.
