    PostDoc in Quantum Matterwave Optics on Crete (nanoLace)

    The Project 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. We have recently even been able to demonstrate a coherent waveguide for matterwaves (published in Nature). We have recently demonstrated the first matterwave lenses inside matterwave guides. Waveguided Matterwave mirrors and cavities have become reality.   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…

    Research Assistant (PhD, m/f/d) in the field of Experimental Physics

    (Salary Scale 13 TV-L, 75 %) In course of the CRC TerraQ, the Institute of Quantum Optics invites applications for the position of a Research Assistant (PhD, m/f/d) in the field of Experimental Physics (Salary Scale 13 TV-L, 75 %) starting as soon as possible. The position is initially limited to 3 years. Responsibilities and duties The “Very Long Baseline Atom Interferometer“ facility (VLBAI) is one of three major research instruments at the “Hannover Institut für Technologie“ (HITec). Spanning across 10m free fall distance, our apparatus allows one to perform atom interferometry with rubidium and ytterbium with very large scale factors. In combination with exquisite control over systematic effects, e.g.…

    Postdoctoral Fellow in Theoretical and Computational Physics

    We have an opening for a 2-year fixed-term research position in analytical and computational quantum dynamics of ultracold atoms. Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in theoretical and computational physics of ultracold few-atom systems. The postdoctoral fellow will work on fundamental aspects of quantum dynamics, semiclassical quantum chaos, and stochastic computational methods applied to strongly correlated ultra-cold atom systems with short-range interactions. A further aspect of the project is the development and implementation of stochastic algorithms for quantum dynamics and excitation spectra of closed and open quantum systems, extending the existing projector quantum Monte Carlo algorithms in the software package Rimu.jl (https://github.com/joachimbrand/Rimu.jl). The main research question is how few-body quantum correlations can…

    Research Fellow in Cold Atom Gradiometry

    https://tinyurl.com/ztnhxs95 Atom interferometry has become a versatile tool for fundamental research and, more recently, has started to move out of the laboratory towards quantum sensing for a wide range of applications. The atom interferometry group at the University of Birmingham is focused on the development of sensors for the measurement of gravity and gravity gradiometry. The group is now seeking candidates to play a key role in the developing the next generation of compact cold atom gravity gradiometers. The aim is to create portable devices that can operate on moving vehicles. Within this position, the successful candidates will develop the cold atom gravity gradiometer, the requisite underpinning hardware and perform research…

    Research Fellow on the AION Project

    See https://tinyurl.com/m96zxm4v Atom interferometry has become a versatile tool for fundamental research and, more recently, has started to move out of the laboratory towards quantum sensing for a wide range of applications. The atom interferometry group at the University of Birmingham is focused on the development of sensors for the measurement of gravity and gravity gradiometry. The group is now seeking candidates to fulfil a key role in the development of a new strontium atom interferometry laboratory for research into techniques to improve large momentum transfer and enable improvements in sensitivity. This is part of the recently funded Atom Interferometry Observatory and Network project (AION), funded within the Quantum Technologies for…

    Postdoctoral position in experimental quantum optics in Budapest

    The Project — The Quantum Optics Group of the Wigner Research Centre for Physics in Budapest is looking for a motivated postdoctoral fellow to perform experimental  research in the frame of the Quantum Information National Laboratory of Hungary. The aim of the project is the realisation of an atom based quantum interface to coherently couple low-intensity microwave and optical signals. The postdoctoral fellow will be involved in the development of the cavity quantum electrodynamics experiment to trap ultracold atoms and realise an optical lattice within a high-finesse optical resonator. The Host — The Quantum Optics group, led by Prof. Peter Domokos, has both experimental and theoretical activities in the research field of cavity QED with cold atoms…
