  Quantum optics using quantum dots
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof M Fox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Semiconductor quantum dots are considered to be one of the best candidates to serve as the quantum emitters in quantum communication and quantum computing technologies.
  Spin-photon interface using InAs quantum dots
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof M Fox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The spins of electrons and holes confined within InAs quantum dots can be used as qubits within spin quantum networks. The spins interact strongly with photons, and this provides the basis for a spin-photon interface, enabling transfer of quantum information between separated spin qubits using photons.
  Semiconductor Quantum Nanophotonics
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof M S Skolnick
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD position in the quantum science and technology of semiconductor nanostructures.
  Nanoscale quantum physics and quantum information processing with electrons and atoms in semiconductor quantum dots
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Dr E Chekhovich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoscale semiconductor structures have attracted considerable attention for potential applications in quantum information processing, energy harvesting, and photonics.
  Nano-magnetism in atomically thin 2D quantum materials and their heterostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the discovery of graphene, a large family of layered crystals has attracted significant attention. The properties of these materials range from superconductors and metals, to semiconductors and insulators.
  Strong light-matter interaction in van der Waals 2D materials: discovery of novel quantum states of the matter
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The isolation of single-atomic layer graphene has led to a surge of interest in a large family of layered crystals with strong in-plane bonds and weak van der Waals interlayer coupling.
  Van der Waals 2D materials: optical manifestations of the quantum physics of moiré superlattices
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional materials can be assembled in vertical stacks (called ‘heterostructures’), which are held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces, allowing for coupling between monolayer crystals with incommensurate lattices and arbitrary mutual rotation, or ‘twist’.
  Sub-wavelength all-dielectric nano-photonics: 2D materials and beyond
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

So far nano-photonics has dealt with dielectric devices relying on confining light in diffraction-limited volumes. Beating the diffraction limit by confining light on sub-wavelength scales has been only possible with plasmonic structures made of nano-structured metal, which unavoidably suffer from large optical losses.
