Mesoscopic quantum mechanics in real systems

Applications accepted all year round
Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
Quantum mechanics has been well tested at microscopic levels, but less so macroscopically. Recent experimental advances in cold atoms, opto-mechanics, ion traps and quantum optics make such fundamental tests feasible. The aim is to develop theory for quantum mechanics in mesoscopic systems, focusing on quantum entanglement. Associated with these objectives is to develop phase space and quantum simulation techniques, and to investigate quantum applications such as device-independent cryptography.
Student scholarships available yearly on a competitive basis. English language tests apply. Interested applicants please email Prof Reid with a CV and academic transcript.
