PhD position Mm-wave and cryogenic measurement and calibration techniques

Updated: about 2 months ago
Deadline: 01 Aug 2021

Qauntum technologies, such as quantum sensors and quantum computing, will revolutionize scientific  nd technological developments in the coming years. However, most quantum devices operates at cryogenic temperature and require interfacing with standard electronics operating both at room temperature and at cryogenic tmeperature. The main target of this PhD project is the development of novel metrology techniques and methods to enable measurement, characterization and design of the cryogenic infrastructure required for future qauntum technologies.

The candidate will join the Electronic Circuits and Architectures and the QCAT (Quantum Circuits Architectures and Technology) groups and work on the develoment of characterizaiton techniques for small and large signal and noise measurement in the mm-wave range (up to 325GHz) and cryogenic environemnt (down to 4K). The project will also run in strict collaboration with QuTech, the world-leading institute founded in 2014 as a collaboration between Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO), and focusing on quantum computing and quanutm internet.

The project controbution will be a part of two European consortium in the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) framework
