Project Description

The Epitaxy and Physics of Nanostructures (EPN) group, Tyndall National Institute and University College Cork (Ireland) fund a PhD position on photonic quantum technologies with cluster states from quantum dots.

Responsibilities:

The research will focus on developing applications with semiconductor, site-controlled, artificial atoms for quantum information processing. Recent results on the unique system developed at Tyndall were featured in major reviews, such as Nature Photonics (e.g. Gediminas Juska, et al. “Towards quantum dot based arrays of entangled photon emitters”, Nature Photonics 7, 527 (2013); T. H. Chung, et al. “Selective carrier injection into patterned arrays of pyramidal quantum dots for entangled photon light-emitting diodes”, Nature Photonics 10, 782 (2016)).

• The PhD candidate in collaboration with the EPN team will build on those results to study a new field: engineering coupled quantum dot states suitable for photonic cluster state emission. The project aims at generating long photonic cluster states, so to prove their suitability for quantum computation, potentially revolutionising current approaches to quantum information processing.
• The PhD position is funded by a tailored grant, under Dr. Gediminas Juska’s supervision, and will be performed in collaboration with the whole EPN group, run by Dr. E. Pelucchi. An annual student stipend of €18,000.00 applies for this successful candidate for this position. Yearly University academic fees will be paid by the Tyndall National Institute.
• These studies will provide an excellent base for a career both in academia and in the high-value industry.

Requirements:

• The minimum academic qualification is a first honours degree (or an equivalent international degree) in physics, electronic engineering or related relevant discipline.

We are seeking highly self-motivated applicants with strong experimental attitude to apply for this position.
