2012 Research Associate Position in Levitated Spin Qubit Experiments at UCL, UK

If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

Applications are invited for an EPSRC funded Post-Doctoral Research Associate to work with Peter Barker in UCL and Gavin Morley in the University of Warwick. We have demonstrated the optical levitation of micron-sized diamonds, and plan to cool their centre-of-mass motion to the quantum mechanical ground state. Coupling this motion with nitrogen-vacancy spin qubits in the diamond is sure to provide exciting physics and will be useful for quantum information technology. You will build the experiment by replicating the diamond-trapping equipment we have, with additional provision for single-spin nitrogen-vacancy experiments.

You should have experience of designing and building physics experiments including preferably optics and lasers, microwave and RF engineering and vacuum experience. Experience with single-spin nitrogen-vacancy experiments would be particularly suitable. Applicants should have, or be very close to obtaining, a doctorate in a field related to this research area.

Deadline: 4 Aug 2012
