quantum information

The “QCAT” Research Group carries out interdisciplinary studies at the border of quantum optics and condensed matter. Our goal is discovering inspiring physical phenomena, investigating the capabilities of modern platforms and finding their potential applications in quantum technologies. The Group has a theoretical background but tightly collaborates with experimentalists. Our domain comprises systems built with integrated optical circuits and superconducting photon detectors, optical microcavities and two-dimensional nanomaterials (e.g. graphene). We specialize in numerical tools.

The Group is led by Dr. habil. Magdalena Stobińska. In 2017 she received a Foundation for Polish Science “First Team” research project and moved her Group to the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw. We are starting to perform our own experiments and the Faculty of Physics UW offers great possibilities of realization of these plans. Currently, the Group comprises two postdocs, two Ph.D. students and a M.Sc. student.

Please contact us if you are interested in collaboration or discussions!

Quantum mechanics has been a constant source of innovation for over a century, and is now opening the door to a new age of information technologies. Identifying the key quantum structures and developing new concepts and methods can accelerate the progress, facilitating the development of new information-processing protocols and the discovery of new connections with other areas of physics.

Applications are invited for 2-year postdoctoral position in quantum computation at the National University of Ireland, Galway. We are particularly interested in researchers who would like to work on problems in quantum game theory, quantum walks, or general quantum algorithms. The position carries a salary of 31,275 euro with eligible direct research expenses of 5,000 euro/year. For initial enquiries, please email michael.mcgettrick@nuigalway.ie to discuss research topics.
