PhD, postdoc, and assistant professor vacancies in Quantum Photonics, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen (group of Prof. Peter Lodahl)

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
