The PhD project is in the domain of many-body physics with highly excited Rydberg atoms. The position is funded via the DFG priority programme GiRyd (http://giryd.de/en/) through the grant "Non-equilibrium phenomena in Rydberg lattice gases with facilitation constraints".
The project is to carry out theoretical research on the physics of trapped Rydberg ions and atoms within the ERyQSenS-consortium (funded through the QuantERA call) which is formed by European experimental and theoretical research group.
The symposium is intended to intensify the link between the basic research areas of photonics and atomic ensembles. Leading scientists in the fields of quantum communication protocols, quantum memory and quantum repeaters, atomic ensembles, Rydberg atoms and photonic QIP will discuss new promising approaches to quantum information and communication technologies and their physical challenges.
