Dr. Olivia Meyer-Streng at IDW writes: ''The ability to control the propagation of light is at the technological heart of today’s telecommunication society. Researchers in the Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurement led by Prof. Tobias J. Kippenberg (now EPFL) have discovered a novel principle to accomplish this, which is based on the interaction of light (photons) with mechanical vibrations (phonons).

A PhD position is open in the atom optics group in Hamburg, Germany for studying the interaction of a Bose-Einstein condensate in an optical high finesse (> 500.000) cavity operating in the regime of resolved recoil sidebands.

Quantum communication networks are high on Europe's agenda, with particular focus being given to quantum memory or information storage. Meeting the challenge head on to make such information accessible to users is a team of scientists from Denmark who used two 'entangled' light beams to store quantum information. The research study, supported by the EU with a combined funding of almost EUR 16 million, is presented in the journal Nature Physics.

DESCRIPTION: Post-doctoral position at the Quantum Information Group of the University of Barcelona (Spain).

FIELD: The successful candidate is expected to have obtained a Ph.D. in Quantum Computation, quantum many-body physics or in the study of cold atomic systems. On top of this basic requirement, programming skills, deep knowledge of quantum field theory or a strong background in mathematics is certainly a plus.
