The pillars of modern physics, quantum mechanics and general relativity, coexist very successfully, having in their respective domains impressive observational support. However, questionable unification of the known forces, cosmological constant problems, black hole entropy puzzle, and conceptual difficulties of quantum mechanics and its application to the Universe are stumbling blocks on the way to a deeper understanding.

Quantum effects are in use since the 20th century and have led to market shaping innovations like semiconductor electronics and lasers. In the 21st century, quantum technology developments focus on the controlled quantum state of individual or coupled systems. While this quantum technology is still in the research stage, it offers an enormous potential and a number of initiatives worldwide have been formed to foster the technology and its commercial potential.

Postdoc Opportunity at NIST:
Spin-Photon Coupling, and Single-Atom Devices

NIST (a government research lab located in Maryland, USA) has a program in researching single-electron tunneling (SET) devices, based on Coulomb blockade. These devices, when operated at low temperatures, give us the remarkable ability to monitor or control the motion of single electrons. Among the goals of our research are to develop charge and spin qubits for use in quantum computing.

At this time we have two projects:

This 3-day workshop on applications of discrete phase space methods in fault-tolerant quantum computing provides a platform for young researchers to present their work while leaving enough opportunities for extended discussions and informal exchange of ideas. The workshop targets equally students entering the field and researchers with a few years of experience.
