In the Quantum Photonics Group at the Niels Bohr Institute we explore solid-state quantum optics and photonic nanotechnology. We currently have a number of vacancies within the scope of several recently funded grants, including an ERC Advanced Grant.
Solid-state photonic quantum systems have recently matured dramatically, and it is now feasible to merge small-scale quantum systems into larger quantum architectures. We exploit single quantum dots embedded in photonic-crystal nanostructures as qubits for quantum technology. Recent highlights include the deterministic coupling of single photons and single quantum dots, chiral spin-photon interfaces, and giant single-photon non-linearities. Our research covers a broad spectrum from fabrication of nanophotonic structures through quantum optics experiments to in-depth theory.
We currently seek excellent and highly motivated people to join our research team both experiment and theory/modelling. Relevant backgrounds would be within physics, electrical engineering, photonics, nanotechnology, nanofabrication, or similar. The following projects within fundamental and applied research are now available:
- Coherent chip-scale single-photon sources
- Quantum simulations with coherent single photons
- Photonic topological insulators
- Nanoelectromechanical photonic circuits
- Quantum gates based on deterministic spin-photon interfaces
- Interfacing multiple quantum dots for quantum networks
