Postdoc in Cavity Optomechanics with Bulk Acoustic Modes

Are you also intrigued by the possibility of exploring macroscopic quantum phenomena? And do you want to pursue your scientific career in a world-leading research environment? Then please continue reading.

At the Center for Macroscopic Quantum States (bigQ) at DTU Physics, we seek an excellent, ambitious, and proactive experimentalist for a 2-year postdoc position to drive a recently initiated experimental project in the highly topical field of cavity optomechanics with bulk acoustic modes, and in close collaboration with a PhD student establish a state-of-the-art setup.

Our motivation is to investigate the Brillouin optomechanical coupling of bulk acoustic modes of crystalline resonators to an optical cavity field, and the first scientific objective is to demonstrate low-threshold strong coupling. The long-term visions include both fundamental investigations of macroscopic quantum phenomena as well as quantum information processing applications of the platform.

bigQ is a Danish national Center of Excellence in quantum information science and technology. The purpose of the center is to explore quantum physics in new macroscopic regimes, deepening our understanding of quantum physics, and speeding up the development of emerging quantum technologies.

PhD position in Micromagnetic Modelling of New Permanent Magnets

Do you want to contribute to a sustainable future? At DTU Energy our research is targeting exactly this, and we are looking for a new PhD student.

In 2020 we celebrated the discovery of electromagnetism by H.C. Ørsted 200 years ago. Since then, magnets have become omni-present in our daily life, finding their way into everything from the loudspeaker and vibrator in our phones to generators in wind turbines and power plants. The stronger magnets today contain rare-earth metals, which are associated with uncertain supply chains, pollution due to mining, and geopolitical issues. Therefore, research on alternative rare-earth free magnets are a top priority and paramount for green and sustainable growth.

In the project from the Independent Research Fund Denmark, which this PhD position is a part of, we will investigate enhancing the magnetic performance of rare-earth free permanent magnets through nanoscale crystallite orientation as well as inspiration from interstellar chemistry. Our partners at Aarhus University will work on the chemistry of the magnets and your part in the project will be to investigate our rare-earth free magnets using our state-of-the-art open-source micromagnetic model, MagTense, and to develop this model even further.

You will both model how the magnetization and magnetic field varies within the individual rare-earth free magnetic particles but also within packings of particles, as we know that this crucially affects magnetic properties. The questions we are trying to answer are the following:

  • How does the magnetic field inside a particle depend on the geometry of that particle?
  • What is the best geometry, e.g. aspect ratio, of magnetic particles for the collective behavior to have the overall best magnetic properties?
  • Can both magnetic field strength (remanence) and magnetic field resistance (coercivity) be optimized at the same time by tuning the particle shape?

In collaboration with a PhD-student at Aarhus University you will get to validate your modeling results against experiments. You will have the opportunity to suggest new experiments and compare the resulting measured experimental properties with your modeling results and thus together realize the optimal magnet. You will also have the opportunity to carry out measurements of magnetic properties yourself, using our unique magnetic measuring systems.

Qualifications
Qualified applicants must have:

  • You must have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) in physics, astronomy, mathematics, engineering, chemistry or similar.
  • Experience with static magnetism (magnetostatics) as gained e.g. from a physics courses in electromagnetism.
  • Experience with modelling techniques and preferably some experience with numerical approximations.
  • Experience with Matlab, Python and potentially Fortran.
  • Ability to work independently, to plan and carry out complicated tasks, and to be a part of a large, dynamic group.
  • Good communication skills in English, both written and spoken.

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.

The PhD Fellow will be affiliated with the following project “Settled barite as annular barrier – characterization and refinement”.

Barite settling is a technical challenge which several researchers and drilling fluid engineers have been studying it for the last four decades. The result of barite settling from drilling fluid (e.g., during well construction) could be well control issues, stuck pipe, etc. In addition, settled barite can create challenges during slot recovery operations when cut & pull is necessary. 

Barite settles differently in drilling fluids. For example, barite will settle more quickly in oil-based drilling fluids (OBM) than in water-based (WBM). Still it is expected that a sediment’s cohesive forces may be stronger in settled volumes from WBM than from similar volumes in OBM. Furthermore, this cohesive force may depend on the chemical composition of the drilling fluid and the drilling fluid components’ aerobic and anaerobic degradation. 

Laboratory experiments have shown that pure barite particles may not provide sealability, however, in combination with other chemicals present in drilling fluids, the sealability may be achieved. One should also note that operational experiences (during cut & pull operations) have shown that solidified settled barite can be experienced. 

In this project, the main objective is utilizing settled barite as annular barrier for maintaining well integrity and as permanent annular barrier. To achieve the main objective, the work is divided into two main sections to be conducted in parallel by the candidate: investigating settled barite as unconsolidated sand, and creating consolidated barite.  

The objective of the study includes:

  • Reviewing operational data and literature.
  • Studying requirements and developing qualification procedures to qualify settled barite as annular barrier.
  • Determination of barite plug formation in different types of drilling fluids, including establish measurement procedure and sample preparation and measurement of wet barite powder rheology.
  • Determination of barite plug consolidation for different types of sediments, including development of measurement methods and investigation of consolidation.
  • Quantifying maximum pressure that the created barrier could withstand.

RE-ADVERTISEMENT: Postdoc in Communications for Cooperative Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Aarhus University, invites applicants for a postdoc position offering applicants an exciting opportunity to join a new European research project. The position is open for 18 months with a possibility for further extension.

The position is available from 1 October 2021 or as soon as possible hereafter.
 

Job description/research project/research area

Inspection of critical infrastructure such as bridges and railway systems have been a cumbersome and costly process for decades. The inspection process incurs not only operational expenditures but also human capital risks. With the invent of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), the inspection operations can soon be efficiently deployed by highly scalable cooperating autonomous systems (also known as swarms) under a remote operator supervision. However, the limited endurance, moderate computing power as well as the imperfect sensing and communication capabilities of the system can be circumvented by organizing multiple UAVs into groups using swarm coordination algorithms. This allows UAV swarms to perform tasks that are scalable in a robust manner potentially bringing enhanced safety, reduced cost, and a faster inspection mission completion time.

The offered postdoctoral project aims to provide the theoretical and innovative foundation for networks of autonomous UAVs to determine efficient cooperation strategies that permit inspection operations in complex environments under non-ideal conditions such as imperfect communication and imperfect sensory inputs. It is vital for the success of the inspection mission to provide a cooperative path planning optimization of UAVs to fully exploit the quality of service needed. The project aims to research in algorithms to cope with the high complexity of the inspection environment as well as to find ways to cope with imperfect of sensory inputs and unreliable communication.

The offered postdoc position will give you the opportunity to develop your research and your career profile together with a highly dedicated and dynamic team of young researchers in an international setting that includes collaboration with international partners in Europe. You will be offered the chance to get experience with teaching and co-supervision.
