PhD scholarship in Fabrication and Characterization of Quantum Light Sources

The Quantum and Laser Photonics Group at DTU Fotonik, Department of Photonics Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark, is seeking a candidate for a PhD position. The PhD student will work in the field of microfabrication and quantum optical characterization of sources of single indistinguishable photons based on semiconductor quantum dots. The position is offered with support from the European Research Council.

Solid-state sources of single photons are expected to play an important role in various quantum information applications, such as secure communications, quantum computation and metrology. These applications require deterministic on-demand emission as well as high efficiency, purity and indistinguishability of the emitted photons. A promising platform for a deterministic single-photon source (SPS) is based on the semiconductor quantum dot (QD) in a solid-state environment. Until now the activities at DTU Fotonik have been limited to theory and modelling of SPSs, but with this opening we are launching also an experimental activity in this field.

Responsibilities and tasks
You will participate in a project team with several Postdocs and PhD students, which will design and fabricate quantum-dot-based SPSs meeting all the requirements of the quantum information applications. The focus of this PhD project is the experimental activity including the microfabrication and the optical characterization of the devices.

We will grow wafers with cavities with Stranski-Krastanov randomly distributed semiconductor InAs QDs surrounded by distributed Bragg reflectors in collaboration with the University of Würzburg. We will subsequently identify the randomly positioned QDs using an optical imaging technique, and we will etch pillar structures around the QDs. The lithography will be done using a combination of UV and e-beam lithography, and the etching will be performed using reactive ion etching, and possibly also wet chemical etching. The structures will be electrically contacted in order to use the Stark effect for stabilization of the local charge environment. For the optical characterization, the devices will be characterized placed in a cryostat and the QDs will be excited using resonant or quasi-resonant optical excitation. We will then characterize the single-photon emission in terms of purity, indistinguishability and efficiency. The experimental activity will take place in a close feedback loop with the theoretical activity to take into account the experimental results in subsequent design iterations, and the entire project team will discuss promising opportunities for next-generation SPS designs.

The candidate is thus expected to

  • Perform spectroscopy and optical imaging of QDs.
  • Perform UV and e-beam lithography.
  • Perform reactive ion etching and wet chemical etching.
  • Perform metal deposition.
  • Implement a setup for optical device characterization.
  • Characterize the devices in terms of efficiency, purity (Hanbury Brown-Twiss) and indistinguishability (Hong-Ou-Mandel).
  • Supervise project students.
  • Contribute to the development of new SPS designs.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. Additionally, the candidate must have passed an introductory course on quantum mechanics. The candidate must describe his/her previous experience with quantum mechanics in the cover letter (see below).

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

    We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher within the field of advanced nanobody discovery technologies from the 1 February 2021 (or soon thereafter) for a 4-year position. The candidate will be part of an extraordinarily ambitious antibody development project with the aim of developing a fully recombinant antivenom against snakebite for sub-Saharan Africa.

    The Tropical Pharmacology Lab
    Snakebite envenoming is a Neglected Tropical Disease that each year claims 150,000 lives and maims another 400,000 victims for life. Existing treatments based on polyclonal antibodies derived from the blood of immunized animals are scarce and have a number of drawbacks, including high cost a propensity to elicit adverse reactions due to their immunogenic disposition.

    PhD position in Experimental Particle Physics

    UiB – Knowledge that shapes society

    Through robust and close interaction with the world around us – globally, nationally and locally – we shall be instrumental in building a society based on knowledge, skills and attitudes.

    Do you want to take part in shaping the future?

    PhD position in Experimental Particle Physics

    There is a vacancy for a PhD position in experimental particle physics at the Department of Physics and Technology. The position is for a fixed-term period of 3 years. The position is financed by a project of the GRIEG program grant “Understanding the Early Universe: interplay of theory and collider experiments” in collaboration with the particle theory group at the Department of Physics, University of Warsaw. The position is based in Bergen with a possibility of frequent visits to CERN and the University of Warsaw.

    About the project/work tasks

    This project will be carried out within the group for Experimental Particle Physics and its participation in ATLAS experiment at CERN’s LHC (Large Hadron Collider). This experiment has participation from several thousand physicists around the world and collects data from proton-proton collisions at extremely high energy.  The Bergen research group has a long tradition of  measurements  with the purpose of improving our knowledge of the properties of particles and processes as described by the Standard Model of elementary particles, as well as searching for new particles and phenomena that can, for example, explain the existence of Dark Matter. The goal of the grant within which the present position is funded is to contribute to the ultimate construction of a deeper theory than the Standard Model theory of the elementary interactions that would help us understand the history of the Early Universe.

    The Bergen group searches for new particles in decays containing tau-leptons, or that have been produced in association with a Higgs-boson decaying to two tau-leptons. This project will concentrate on the study the decay of the Higgs-boson to two tau leptons in more detail, as this decay channel offers unique possibilities to study the properties of the Higgs-boson, e.g. its CP-properties. The goal, in addition to a measurement, is to determine ultimate sensitivity of the LHC to the CP of the Higgs boson. This goal will be realised in a close collaboration with the theory group in Warsaw.

    Qualifications and personal qualities

    • The applicant must hold a master’s degree or the equivalent in subatomic physics, or must have submitted his/her master’s thesis for assessment prior to the application deadline. It is a condition of employment that the master’s degree has been awarded.
