PhD Studentships, Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Sussex, UK

PhD Studentship: Inertial sensors and lattices for Quantum Technology
A 3.5 year PhD position is available in in the Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics Group with Prof. Barry Garraway in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex.

University of Sussex, UKThe position consists of current fees and a yearly stipend of £14296 which can be supplemented by tutoring. The position also includes an annual travel allowance. You should have a physics, electrical engineering or related degree.

The physics of ultra-cold atoms provides fantastic opportunities for the development of new ideas with applications such as new and more precise sensors in quantum technology. This theory project is expected to co-operate with experimental work: the PhD student will take a leading role in the development of techniques for the control of ultra-cold atoms. The work aims to make theoretical studies of quantum systems in topologies such as atoms in elongated traps, rings, lattices, shells and toroids. The work may have applications to interferometry, rotation sensing, accelerometers and quantum information processing.

The project will build on recent proposals to make microwave loop traps [1] and lattices [2] for ultra-cold atoms that may be used for model condensed matter simulations and quantum information processing on a grid. For a recent review of related work see [3]. The project is mostly theoretical, but there may be an opportunity for experimental work, too. The project will be connected to work in the UK Quantum Technology hub in sensors and metrology as the work in this project is highly relevant, as underpinning science, to the development of quantum technologies.

The University of Sussex is located a short distance from the city of Brighton and Hove. It is a vibrant seaside location, boasting beautiful views and a huge range of activities and attractions. The city has great transport links, and the area is surrounded by unique villages and the South Downs National Park.

PhD Scholarship in Experimental Physics, Umeå University, Sweden

The Department of Physics is looking for a PhD student in Ultrafast Surface Science. Application deadline is 2017-04-01.

Project description:
The experimental laser physics and materials science have been for many years very strong research fields at the Department of Physics. In 2015 a new research group was initiated that bridges the expertise in materials science and laser physics. The new group (Ultrafast Surface Science Group) develops advanced optical techniques to study ultrafast phenomena in various materials and materials systems, in particular materials for solar energy applications and novel 2D materials. The primary techniques employed are time-resolved ARPES (Angle-Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy), time-resolved two-photon photoemission spectroscopy, and optical pump-and-probe spectroscopies. The goal is to uncover complex dynamics, such as exciton multiplication, and dominant interactions in these materials. The materials studied can be prepared in-situ in the laboratory or obtained from collaborating research groups in Umeå and elsewhere.

The research group is accepting now applications to fill a PhD position. The successful student will perform experiments on interfaces of organic semiconductors and semiconductor nanocrystals. The research project will involve implementation of new experiments, preparation of samples, and the experimental work. Parts of the experimental work will be performed in collaboration with research groups in Umeå, including OPEG (The Organic Photonics and Electronics Group) at the Department of Physics, and collaborating groups abroad.
