Post-Doctoral Researcher (Trapped-ion Quantum Information Processing)
Join an effort with the long-term goal of developing technologies to enable large-scale quantum information processing with individual atomic ions. Near-term research is focused on methods to enhance the fidelity of quantum operations and to control large arrays of ions, particularly using integrated technologies. Activities will include operation of cryogenic UHV systems and associated lasers and control electronics for trapping, cooling, and manipulation of individual atomic ions.
Requirements include a Ph.D. in physics or related field and at least three years performing research in experimental atomic physics and/or quantum information processing. Experience with atomic laser cooling and trapping, trapped-ion techniques, UHV systems, cryogenic apparatus, laser systems and optics, and experimental automation and control is preferred.
This position is a two-year term appointment.
Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group Overview The Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group conducts quantum information science research from a shared foundation of innovative control-signal design, outstanding fabrication tools, and well-equipped measurement infrastructure. The group has a broad range of experimental and prototyping activities. The group's quantum information science activities include the development of superconducting and trapped-ion qubits and quantum sensing with nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond. In addition, the group has robust capabilities in classical superconducting circuits, complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) design and fabrication, and integrated photonics. These component technologies are used in synergy with quantum information science demonstrations, as well as in standalone applications that include beyond-CMOS circuit technologies, energy-starved sensors, compact optical communication and laser radar transceivers, and microwave photonic signal processing.
