quantum optics

We are seeking an excellent atomic physicist to work within our technical team, to take the lead on aspects of our experimental development. The ideal candidate should have a PhD in AMO physics or other related field, come with good references and be able to show examples of high skill or talent in this field. We are particularly interested in candidates with prior experience in setting up cold atom, BEC or spectroscopy experiments or in candidates who have built frequency-doubled fiber laser systems from off the shelf components.

We are particularly interested in candidates with prior experience in photonic quantum computing, non-linear or fibre optics.

For our newly formed theory division located in Toronto, Canada, we are seeking an excellent research scientist to work on various theoretical aspects of quantum computer design and development. This involves, but is not limited to, development of new photonic-based quantum computing architectures, implementation of quantum algorithms to be compatible with the ORCA photonic design and development of tailored fault-tolerant error correcting codes. An important milestone on the way to the photonic fault-tolerant universal quantum computer is a noisy near-term device with limited fault tolerance capabilities. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to its development in close collaboration with the ORCA quantum hardware group.

Overview

The Quantum Information and Computation group at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Innsbruck is looking for a Postdoc to start working on a new ambitious and exciting project. The multidisciplinary scope of this research brings together ideas from artificial intelligence, measurement-based quantum computation and theoretical quantum optics. The ideal candidate has proven expertise in at least two of these fields, and is familiar with numerical simulations and analytics in quantum theory.

Recent advances in our ability to generate and manipulate quantum-coherent matterwaves is now ushering in a new era of quantum optics, where the roles of matter and light are almost exactly reversed. We are starting to be able to create almost arbitrary matterwave-images, (de)magnify, and project them. Matterwave mirrors, lenses and cavities are rapidly becoming reality. We have recently even been able to demonstrate a coherent waveguide for matterwaves.

In the nanoLace project, we are going to build a novel type of matterwave lithography experiment, where we will exploit the fact that time-dependent matterwave lenses will enable us to reduce the wavelength of matterwaves by orders of magnitude. We expect to be able to generate arbitrary patterns as small as a few nanometres. Potential applications stretch from the fundamental (quantum-matterwave-optics) to the industrial (micro-chip production with nanometric structures). To this end we are now in the process of setting up a novel matterwave lithography machine based on Bose-Einstein Condensates. The project is fully financed in the framework of the EU Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) network nanoLace.
