About the Project
A Rydberg atom quantum receiver promises higher sensitivity than the conventional electrical antenna and does not require the use of local oscillators, mixers and so on that make up the traditional radio receiver. As a result, thermal noise and interference associated with these electronic sub-systems are not present. The Rydberg atom quantum receiver for radio signals is new, radical and has the potential to transform wireless communication.
This research will involve a detailed study of the response of a Rydberg atom quantum receiver to a modulated radio wave. Specifically, this project will develop an experimental test-bed to investigate the: (i) linearity of the response of a Rydberg atom quantum receiver; (ii) impact of a Rydberg atom concentration on the quantum receiver sensitivity, linearity and dynamic range; (iii) demodulation of digital data impressed on the phase and amplitude of a radio wave as well as on multiple sub-bands.
The ideal candidate for this project would have a first degree in physics, electronic and electrical engineering or a related discipline. A passion for experimental work and capability to develop/apply mathematical modelling techniques will be particularly important for this project.
Undergraduate degree in Physics, Electronic and Electrical Engineering or related discipline.
