Three-year PhD position at the University of Dortmund

At: 
University of Dortmund
Deadline: 
29 June, 2012

A three-year position for a PhD student is available in the Department of Physics at the University of Dortmund. The position is part of an EU-funded network working on coherent optical processing in rare-earth ion crystals. The goal of the project is the development of technologies for storing photonic quantum states in the crystal with high fidelity and high efficiency, with storage times exceeding one second.

Postdoc and PhD positions in Freiburg

At: 
Freiburg, Germany
Deadline:

Fibre optic multi-photon sources for quantum information

At: 
University of Bristol, UK
Deadline: 
3 March, 2012

In Bristol we focus on optical realisations of quantum information primitives (CNOT gates, cluster states, quantum relays) using pairs and multipairs of photons generated using fibre optic pair photon sources. These exploit nonlinearities and novel phasematching in micro-structured optical fibres. These sources have demonstrated the highest efficiency for the production and detection of pair photons in well defined spatial modes and temporal modes.
