Imaging and remote sensing protocols in the classical domain are fundamentally limited by the diffraction limit and detection noise. To move beyond these boundaries photonic quantum technologies provide new paradigms for achieving unprecedented sensing performance. The Horizon 2020 SURQUID project aims to achieve both super-resolution below the Rayleigh diffraction limit and super-sensitivity below the shot noise limit for light detection and ranging (lidar) applications, see https://surquid.eu/project/
The imec-UGent Photonics Research Group will be responsible for designing and characterizing the silicon-photonics-based multi-channel receiver chip forming the basis for the quantum homodyne detection system (QHD). Combined with non-classical illumination using entangled coherent states (ECS), this will allow to build a quantum lidar system for multi-scale quantum imaging with unparalleled accuracy and precision.
As a postdoctoral researcher, you will work in the framework of the H2020 SURQUID project during at least two years.
You will be responsible for the photonic integrated circuit (PIC) design and testing of the multi-channel receiver chip on which project partners will then integrate superconducting single photon detectors. The chip should include highly efficient input couplers and a multiplexing network, compatible with a cryogenic system. You will collaborate intensively with the international project partners to define the chip specifications and, following fabrication, to setup the whole system for characterizing the QHD system.
