A Post Doctoral position is immediately available in the Quantum Optics group at Institut d'Optique in Palaiseau, France.

Subject : Deterministic photon-photon interactions using Rydberg blockade.

The subject is related to the ERC project « DELPHI », which stands for « Deterministic Logical Photon-Photon Interactions ». The main objective of the project is to use Rydberg atoms as a highly non-linear optical medium, in order to create deterministic coherent interactions between single photons, or to transform weak laser beams into non-classical states, such as « Schrödinger’s cat » states.

The candidate may have any nationality, but must be an experimentalist with an excellent track of records of undergraduate and graduate studies, especially in quantum optics and cold atoms physics.
