Experimental Quantum Networking; 2 PhD Positions, UK 581 views

Experimental Quantum Networking

2 PhD positions for 3.5 year are available in the Ion Trap Cavity-QED and Molecular Physics Group in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex. Project: Experimental Quantum Networking

This project brings together two distinct areas of quantum information processing, single ions stored in radio-frequency traps, and single photons in optical fibres. Both the fields, there have been remarkable advances recently. The main challenge in the field is to enhance quantum processing power by scaling up current devices to larger quantum systems. This will be a world first achievement and of fundamental importance for quantum processing, as it provides a building block for large-scale quantum networks.

Amount Awarded: £14057(2015-16) per annum tax-free grant and waiver of UK/EU fees each year for 3.5 years. Full-time study

Eligibility Criteria:
  • Ist class degree in Physics or a 2.1 degree with a Master’s or equivalent non-UK qualifications.
