About the Project
This proposal aims to leverage the recent realisation of a multi-spatial-mode light squeezer in our laboratory for quantum imaging applications. This unique capability means that light beams can be squeezed locally at every point of their transverse profile. This is akin to ordering the photons inside the beam of light in order to remove the “quantum roughness” across the beam. In particular, we seek to develop new methods to produce squeezed light which will make the next generation of atom magnetometers more sensitive and capable of imaging small currents in the human brain or identify unknown substances at a distance.
This project is suitable for a student with a strong taste for quantum mechanics (and possibly quantum optics) and willing to stretch their experimental skills, particularly in optics and laser physics. This is a human-scale experiment where you will have ample opportunities to learn a wide range of topics, from advanced experimental optics to abstract information theory. You will work in a small team and will be able to make a difference.
Non-EU Students: If you have the correct qualifications and access to your own funding, either from your home country or your own finances, your application to work on this project will be considered. This position is funded by the School for UK/EU students.
