Physics: Optics and Laser, Physics: Photonics, Physics: Quantum
Two postdoctoral positions are available for projects demonstrating diamond nanophotonic and optomechanical technologies for applications in quantum sensing and information processing, including but not limited to quantum transduction, quantum memory, wavelength translation, and spin-photon entanglement.
These projects will leverage and further develop photonic devices fabricated from high quality single crystal diamond material by members of Prof. Paul Barclay's group, which have led to recent demonstrations of multimode optomechanical processes (wide bandwidth wavelength conversion), coherent photon-phonon coupling (EIT) and nonlinear nanomechanic phenomena. Efforts to incorporate coupling between these devices and diamond spins (e.g. NV and SiV centres) are on-going.
Candidates should have experience in one or more of the following areas: nanofabrication, quantum emitter spectroscopy (e.g. quantum dots, NV centres, cold atoms), quantum material processing (annealing, implantation), or nanophotonic device design and experiment. Quantum optics experiment, cryogenics/low-T experiment, microwave circuit design and operation and NEMS device experience is also desirable..
The positions will be supported by access to state of the art equipment and nanofabrication facilities, and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in the setup of a newly funded ($2-3M) quantum transduction and networking lab.
Interested candidates should email their CV, statement of interests/cover letter, and contact information for two references to Prof. Paul Barclay - email@example.com
