PhD and PD position in Quantum information : Design and implementation of an atom chip
This PhD focuses on the design, testing and implementation of an atomic chip to trap ultra-cold atoms and integrating both optical and electrical components.
This chip aims to allow the conversion of single photons between the RF and optical domain which is an essential building block for quantum technologies. This thesis, for which funding has been acquired, will be carried out at the LP2N in Bordeaux on an already functional cold atom experiment. The work is part of an international collaboration including INRIM in Italy which carries out the nano-structuring of surfaces, FORTH in Greece which provides theoretical support to the project, WIGNER in Hungary that carries preliminary tests and Tübingen in Germany where experiments can be carried out at cryogenic temperature. During the PhD, exchanges will be possible with these institutes.
