Integrated Solid State Quantum Photonics

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Monday, May 27, 2019

POSITION DESCRIPTION
The project includes the design, fabrication and experimental characterisation of solid-state single-photon emitters integrated with photonic circuits to create a scalable high-performance platform for quantum optical signal processing.

The University of Technology Sydney has an exceptional team of optical physicists with expertise in optical nanofabrication and experimental characterisation. The project will be supervised by Dr Solntsev in collaboration with Prof Aharonovich / Prof Toth and support external partners at the frontier of integrated photonic circuit fabrication.
