Research Fellow in Experimental Quantum Networking

 Research Fellow in Experimental Quantum Networking

University of Sussex, Sussex, United Kingdom

 Applications are invited for a 22 months full-time postdoctoral position in Experimental Quantum Optics at the University of Sussex. Applicants should have obtained a PhD in experimental quantum optics, laser- or atomic physics and be able to demonstrate working knowledge in this field.

The appointment is within the framework of the EPSRC grant “Quantum Networking with Fibre-Coupled Ions”. The successful candidate will work in a team of experienced researchers directed by Dr Matthias Keller.

The goal of the project is to combine two of the most successful techniques in quantum information processing, individually trapped ions and strong-coupling cavity-QED, and use them as tools to set up a distributed quantum network.

The principal challenge in the implementation of this scheme is the requirement for miniature-size traps and microscopic optical cavities to provide suitable conditions for a high-fidelity interface between ions and photons.

In the project, technologies are developed to demonstrate distributed quantum information processing in a model system. This includes novel ion traps, laser sources and high-finesse optical cavities.
