PhD in Quantum Enabled Synchronised Radar Network

University of Birmingham

The objective of this thesis is to realise a quantum-enabled synchronised radar network with multiple nodes. Such a radar network will allow an understanding of the presence and location of any flying object in the space of interest together with real time updates of that knowledge. Thus, it will enable identification as well as differentiation of slow-moving objects from stationary or fast moving ones, which is a limitation with the current sensing capabilities. In order to achieve this objective, the prospective student will work with miniature optical resonators and an optical-to-microwave source and implement both with a strontium cold-atom system, which will discipline the optical resonators. The complete system will then be evaluated for usage in a distributed radar system. The PhD work will build upon the ongoing work being carried within the QT Hub for Sensing and Timing. The University of Birmingham provides opportunities to attend skills-related training courses and international conferences. The successful candidate will join a team of 2 PostDocs and 2 PhDs. The candidate will be embedded in an excellent eco-system with an excellent support at every level. The research group consists of several PhDs and PostDocs, as well as 4 state-of-the art labs equipped with 5 frequency combs, one active H maser, one UTC rack and two functioning radars among various other facilities and equipments.
