PhD positions in theoretical quantum information science are available at the Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT) at the University of Warsaw. Successful candidates will work in a team of theoretical physicists on one of the following topics:
- Quantum resource theories
- Quantum communication and quantum computation
- Open quantum systems
The project is a joint development between Fondazione Bruno Kessler and University of Trento, in collaboration with University of Bern.
The goal of the activity is to develop a new concept of single photon detector for measuring the spatio-temporal correlations existing in a flux of coincident photons. Such a detector would find application in quantum science, e.g. for the detection of entangled photons in quantum imaging or the generation of quantum random numbers in quantum communication.
