At the Niels Bohr Institute at University of Copenhagen we currently have a postdoctoral position on optomechanics with ultracoherent mechanical resonators.
The Quantum Optomechanics group at the Niels Bohr Institute has pioneered a new approach to engineer mechanical systems of unprecedented coherence. We now seek support to explore the potential of these systems for a host of applications in quantum science and engineering ranging from improved sensitivity in gravitational wave detectors to coherent microwave-optical quantum links.
The postdoc will implement optomechanical experiments with ultarcoherent resonators from room- to milliKelvin temperatures. The goal is to create, store and transduce quantum states of motion, including entangled states. Successful candidates will have a strong PhD in experimental physics or relevant engineering disciplines, and extensive experience in experimental quantum optomechanics. Experience with continuous-variable quantum optics experiments in general, and techniques such as ultraprecise interferometry, high-finesse cavities, membrane-in-the middle systems, and low-temperature operation in particular, complete the profile of the ideal candidate.
