Apply for the job at DTU Fotonik by completing the following form.
DTU Fotonik works with all areas of photonics engineering, including a strong
focus on optical communications. We are hereby announcing an open Post doc
position within generation and processing of entangled states in multimode
optical fibers by four wave mixing. The project is part of the centre of
excellence “Silicon Photonics for Optical Communications” (SPOC) funded by
the Danish National Research Foundation, which was established in 2015 with a
funding period of 10 years. The SPOC centre was established with the aim to
significantly advance the state-of-the-art in ultra-high capacity optical
communications and this project will be at the heart of this activity.
Responsibilities and qualifications
The task of the post doc is to research handling and manipulating of optical
quantum states for example single photon quantum states without destroying the
quantum state. Examples of research could be to: investigate the possibility
of employing time lens units capable of manipulating e.g. hi-D frequency-
entangled states, to convert quantum states between frequency- and time
domain, to demonstrate novel characterization and applications of high
dimensional quantum states. We have ongoing activities related to the control
of multiple modes in fibre for intermodal four-wave mixing, which can create
entangled photon-pairs in the visible and in the C-band, which may be useful
to interface to solid-state memory units. The research of the post doc is
expected to be mainly theoretically focused, but with a strong interaction
with experimental projects having strong synergy to the post doc position.
As a formal qualification, you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent).
Prior theoretical knowledge of multimode optical fibers and intermodal
nonlinear fiber optics as well as quantum optics, preferably in optical
fibers, is an advantage but all candidates with a strong background,
theoretical or experimental, in one or more of the before mentioned topics are
encouraged to apply.
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence
of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a
rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for
academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and
academic freedom tempered by responsibility.
Salary and terms of employment
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish
Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon
with the relevant union.The period of employment is 2.5 years.
The place of work is DTU Fotonik, Ørsteds Plads, Building 343, DK-2800 Kongens
