We are now looking for a talented and highly motivated
POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER IN LASER PHYSICS
Your goal will be to carry out research in quantum optics. The aim is to supervise and experimentally realize a theoretically proposed quantum illumination experiment. This research would make up a new very interesting application field in quantum communications. Knowhow in experimental work in optics is required but also a deep understanding of quantum optics theory is necessary. The chosen person can also participate in the research of optical properties of various nanomaterials, such as two-dimensional layered materials (e.g. transition metal dichalcogenides), and their heterostructures for various photonic and optoelectronic applications. You’ll get to conduct high quality research independently, and to work as an active member of the Micro and Quantum Systems research group by taking part in guiding of M.Sc. students.
This research position will be supported by the Micro and Quantum Systems group (https://www.aalto.fi/en/department-of-electronics-and-nanoengineering/micro…), which is led by Professor Ilkka Tittonen. The group focuses mainly on the study of various nanofabrication methods, energy harvesting, thermoelectrics, quantum optics theory and experiments. The group belongs to the Department of Electronics and Nanoengineering at the School of Electrical Engineering, and is located in the Micronova Nanofabrication Center, the largest academic clean room facility in the Northern Europe.
Your experience and skills
- Doctoral degree in physics, nanotechnology, or related topics is favorable for the position
- Good command of English
