About the Project
The Quantum Sensors group (led by Professor Robert Hadfield) is the UK’s leading research group on superconducting single-photon detectors. These devices set the gold standard for low noise, high speed, high efficiency single photon detection in broad spectrum of quantum technology applications. Key application areas include single photon LIDAR, ghost imaging and ground-to-space quantum communications. Under the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme, Professor Hadfield is responsible for scaling up SNSPDs to large format arrays and extending photon counting performance from near to mid infrared wavelengths.
CRC, founded by Dr Simon Chase in 2003 is a global leader in innovative cooling solutions below 4 Kelvin. CRC is a key supplier of cooling platforms for the global market in quantum technologies. Interest in superconducting single-photon detectors is a particular driver.
CRC is growing rapidly to meet this global demand, and operates out of dedicated industrial premises in Sheffield.
Through this studentship, you will develop innovative cryogenic systems for deployment in cutting edge quantum technology applications. This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious student interested in applied quantum technologies at the interface of physics and engineering.
Applicants should contact Professor Hadfield by 21st June 2020 at the latest.
Please send a CV and contact details of two referees.
