Rese­arch Assist­ant - 0.75 work­ing time - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

Work­ing field:

Par­ti­cip­a­tion in the DFG pro­ject "Micro­laser-excited sources of indis­tin­guish­able photons for quantum net­works". The pro­ject addresses import­ant top­ics in the field of photonic quantum tech­no­logy and aims at the devel­op­ment of quantum cir­cuits with semi­con­ductor quantum dots act­ing as integ­rated single photon emit­ters. Our device concept goes far bey­ond the exist­ing approaches by apply­ing mono­lith­ic­ally integ­rated micro­lasers to res­on­antly excite quantum dots in wave­guide struc­tures for the on-chip gen­er­a­tion of indis­tin­guish­able photons. The planned activ­it­ies in the excit­ing and highly top­ical area include the design and numer­ical optim­iz­a­tion of the integ­rated quantum cir­cuits, the determ­in­istic fab­ric­a­tion using in-situ elec­tron beam litho­graphy and the optical and quantum-optical study of the cir­cuits. The pro­ject work lays the found­a­tion for highly func­tional, com­plex photonic quantum com­pon­ents, which will be key build­ing blocks of future quantum com­mu­nic­a­tion sys­tems and quantum com­puters. The pro­ject is car­ried out in close cooper­a­tion with the part­ner groups of Prof. Gregor Weihs, Uni­versity of Inns­bruck, and Dr. Tobias Huber, Uni­versity of Würzburg.


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in phys­ics or sim­ilar courses with in-depth know­ledge and exper­i­ence in the man­u­fac­ture and optical as well as quantum optical study of low-dimen­sional semi­con­ductor mater­i­als, in par­tic­u­lar in the con­text of the final thesis, prefer­ably in the field of integ­rated quantum nan­o­photon­ics; Exper­i­ence in the field of optical and quantum-optical stud­ies of single photon emit­ters, micro­lasers and photonic cir­cuits based on semi­con­duct­ors is desir­able; also the will­ing­ness to inter­dis­cip­lin­ary cooper­a­tion with external pro­ject groups. Good com­mand of Ger­man and/or Eng­lish required; will­ing­ness to learn either Eng­lish or Ger­man is expec­ted.
