Since 1990, the volt has been defined using superconducting devices called Josephson junctions. The DC voltage across a Josephson junction is related only via fundamental constants to the frequency of an applied microwave signal. As existing microwave sources have frequency stability well below one part-per-billion (ppb), so is the precision of the Josephson voltage standard.
The Quantum Information and Computation Initiative (QICI) of the Computer Science Department at The University of Hong Kong (HKU) invites applications for PhD Fellowships for the academic year 2021/2022.
QICI is home to a vibrant research community, organised in two research groups led by Professors Giulio Chiribella and Ravi Ramanathan. We support an open research culture, where original thinking and academic merit are encouraged and nurtured.
The mission of QICI is to promote the growth of the quantum information area in Hong Kong, and to develop Hong Kong as an international research hub for quantum information and computation.
QICI has been established in November 2018 under the auspices of the HKU Department of Computer Science. Its research platform consists of 3 research teams working on quantum information theory, quantum cryptography, quantum gravity, and quantum foundations.
We at Atomionics are actively expanding our team as we develop the next generation of quantum sensing systems. Atomionics is building portable atom interferometry based sensing solutions using laser cooled atoms for navigation and resource exploration.
There are currently openings for FOUR 3-6 month long internship/apprenticeship positions under the Singapore Government Summation program.
