Quantum Optical Networks with Solid State Spins and Photons is a exclusive research opportunity available at the Department of Physics, Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
Quantum Optical Networks project has postdoc position for 2 years to work on a recently initiated project on controlling the emission and spins of solid state emitters towards the grand aim of constructing a quantum network. In this project, Nitrogen Vacancy centers in diamond membranes (and other defect centers) coupled to micro-cavities or nanoscopic metallic wires to enable an efficient and clean coupling between a spin and a photon will be exploited. The project will be carried out in QPIT at DTU Physics and is carried out in collaboration with partners from Ulm University, Humboldt University and Harvard University.
