Showing 1 to 6 of 6
  A source of quantum light for atom magnetometry
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When using classical light, optical measurements and light-based sensing methods are limited by the unavoidable quantum fluctuations in phase and amplitude, also known as shot noise.
  Exploring Synthetic Topological Quantum Matter
  Dr H Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topological concepts are reshaping our understanding of physics, allowing us to discover, study and classify new quantum states of matter.
  Quantum simulations with Bose-Einstein Condensates
  Dr G Barontini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We use modern techniques of laser cooling and magnetic and optical trapping to reach the lowest temperatures in the universe – just a few billionths of a degree above absolute zero – in very dilute atomic samples.
  Simulation of quantum transport with cold atoms
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum mechanics is believed to play a role in certain natural processes such as light harvesting. For example certain bacteria are capable of capturing the energy of an incoming photon and transporting the resulting excitation to the reaction centre with great efficiency.
  Theory for the Quantum Entangled states of cold atoms controlled with extreme light
  Dr A Demetriadou
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When light illuminates a dielectric object, it is transmitted and reflected. By controlling the topology of such objects (for example their geometry and periodic arrangement), one can direct and concentrate light at extremely small and sub-wavelength volumes, tremendously increasing the light intensity at the same time.
  Ultracold single-atom quantum engines
  Dr G Barontini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The technological progress is pushing towards the realization of smaller scale devices and, at the ultimate level, machines will be built only with one or a few atoms.
