QUSTEC Doctoral Program: IBM Research, Switzerland

QUSTEC doctoral program in the area of Understanding and engineering microscopic sources of noise in solid-state quantum devices / MSCA at the IBM Research – Zurich, Switzerland


RESEARCHER PROFILE: First Stage Researcher (R1), Recognised Researcher (R2), Established Researcher (R3), Leading Researcher (R4)

DEADLINE: 30/09/2020


Research Area

Solid-state quantum devices are rapidly maturing towards useful technology, promising advances in a variety of fields ranging from computation to chemistry and communication. Their performance is currently typically limited by noise, causing loss of information and decoherence. One particular source of noise relevant to solid-state are ensembles of microscopic two-level systems (TLS) interacting with the devices. These are thought to reside on surfaces as well as inside oxide layers, but their exact microscopic origin is not yet understood.

PhD supervisors : Dr Clemens Müller and Dr Andreas Fuhrer
